Guy Tarrant Architects is a multi-award-winning practice specialising in new houses and alterations and additions that deliver exceptional results for clients. Our residential projects are distinctive for their clearly articulated spaces imbued with finely honed detailing. Whether designing urban homes or weekend retreats, we are driven by a desire to create uplifting living environments that respond to their surroundings and exceed the expectations of our clients.

Combining a fine arts background with a Bachelor of Architecture, Guy Tarrant is the recipient of multiple New Zealand Institute of Architects Awards, including the prestigious Sir Ian Athfield Award for Housing. The Courtyard House in Point Chevalier was also a runner-up in the HOME magazine Home of the Year Award.

Every project is underpinned by the desire to deliver an outstanding outcome for our clients by working collaboratively with them as well as all those involved in the building process. To this end we pride ourselves on delivering highly resolved documentation for every project and maintain a keen interest in the construction stages and beyond.

Our design services include the selection of interior finishes and fixtures, as well as advising on colours, furnishings and other details. Our small size and hands-on approach to every project means clients are assured a highly individualised outcome that is a reflection of their lifestyle and aspirations.
