We Design and Build New Homes

EVERY BOX™ HOME IS DRAWN BY ARCHITECTS, CRAFTED BY PEOPLE WHO GIVE A DAMN, AND BUILT WITH CERTAINTY OF COST.

Box™ is a new breed of architectural practice and construction company. That’s right – we do both. We are full of ideas, timeless and great value – just like the new homes we design and build. Box™ is based in Auckland but runs projects from Matapouri to Wanaka.

We are a company of architects, builders, project managers, estimators and interior designers. We love modernist architecture and the process of designing and building.

If you are considering designing and building a new home, contact us and we’ll happily guide you through the process. At Box™ we want you to get up each day and say “I love my house!”

What is a Box Home?

Our unique design-and-build system makes all the difference to the process – and result. The film below explains the Box™ approach.

THE BOX™ DNA: TIMELESS DESIGN

There are a number of features that define the Box™ aesthetic. We can trace their roots to the architecture of the 1950s and 60s, in particular the Californian Case Study houses. – Learn More »

Box™ sometimes build using the distinctive post-and-beam structure (with or without stainless cross braces) that the company has become known for. This method of construction allows clean lines and floor-to-ceiling glass.

Box™ house plans reinterpret the mid-century look in a contemporary way, also with no post-and-beam skeleton. The planning is ‘modular’ and offers all the benefits of our design-and-build system, including certainty of cost and build time.

THE BOX™ DESIGN SERVICE

When it comes to new home design in New Zealand, the one-size-fits-all approach is a misnomer. So we offer a couple of options: a readymade plan that does the business or a custom-designed home that incorporates our proven system and product palette. Either way, we provide you with an architectural service that allows your imagination free rein.
