"What I remember is that I had a lot of laughs with the architect in the design process, and we still enjoy catching up from time to time. I showed them pictures of what we liked, and they came up with a stunner"
"I have seen at first hand how Paua Architects has been able to take a brief and interact with clients to successfully design a brilliant solution"
"They are definitely professional, and come up with great design ideas and solutions. We find they work efficiently with us through solutions for challenging building projects."
"Paua Architects proved immediately that they had a community spirit, a detailed knowledge of theatre space, and most importantly, an interest in architecturally realising the vision that One Victoria Trust had for the Meteor theatre in Hamilton. It is not an overstatement to say that the OVT would not have been able to have achieved the outcome – from the fundraising effort and the renovation project, from concept to finished build – without the expert guidance and support of Paua Architects."
"Te Ahurutanga has been one of the highlights for the Pro Vice-Chancellor office because it provides a central hub, a natural gathering place for many of our staff, students, and the community that reflects the core values of our distinctiveness in being Maori. We have occupied the building for some time now and continue to get compliments about the building’s uniqueness; its structure, style, warm colours, ambience & design. Many have stated that Te Ahurutanga is easily the best designed building on campus."
"Paua Architects has an obvious, and indeed passionate, interest in ensuring that their design and their architecture lasts the distance. What struck us – and what we viewed as being important to the success of our new facility – was Paua’s intrinsic interest in working collaboratively with our Management Team and the Proprietors through the project."
"Paua has a rare talent for projects that require more than architecture, delivering projects that set new benchmarks in creative development and delivery."
The Sports Centre, as well as being a beautifully designed and well-functioning building, was designed perfectly to best respond to its challenging site. Paua made the most of the building’s situation and shaped the building to create a beautiful outdoor courtyard with well-established trees at its centre.”
"Paua Architects listened to us, visited our existing home and new site, advised us, respected our very modest budget, found an excellent builder, and developed a simple, delightful house that our family loves to this day"
"Building is such a roller coaster of excitement, mess and stress. The planning part with the architect is so exciting it’s the best bit; that, and finishing the build. There’s not a day goes by without me thinking that I’m glad the architect suggested this or that, and I’m glad we did it"
"What PAUA achieved with that building was something quite unique and it has been one of my favourite buildings since the makeover was complete. I often used to take campus visitors in there for a look at how much can be achieved with a very simple structure."
