Architecture

At the heart of Modernism is the law that form must follow function. For S&T Architects, this means that fulfilling the needs of your building’s occupants is the ambition that drives our design thinking. Our architectural values are human values.

For our Architectural team, exploring the frontiers of space is a compulsion. Our philosophy for shaping built environments that are both practical and elegant centres on interpreting the client requirements and creating value through innovative, inspirational yet environmentally sustainable design solutions. Our design skills and extensive experience enable us to lead the entire process, from briefing, through to design, construction and commission.

“S&T did a wonderful job of giving us a ‘new’ school that is absolutely beautiful in the way it accentuates the old and the new. Visitors and new families complement our school daily. They’re delighted as they walk in, especially those who knew the old school. We appreciated the investigation S&T undertook to discover the history of the school and how they incorporated this into the structure and design of our new school.” 

- Kyran Smith, Principal at Kahurangi School


“We had a clear sense of where we were going. S&T’s architectural expertise and their edgy ideas brought out some things we would never have thought of and we came up with these different ideas which we managed to slot it. And it worked! I love it! I love that it’s modern, and it’s bright, and it’s a little bit different, and it’s got that edginess that means it’s not going to date but it’s not too over the top.“

- Judith Taylor, Upper Hutt College Principal


“The design of the office helps me to achieve more - whether it is the Conversation Zone where people can work together and share ideas or the Quiet Zone where people can focus on their work independently. You choose the room to suit the work you have to do and each area provides a flexible mix of technology to facilitate the many different work and meeting styles and needs. It makes the office a more enjoyable place to work and I feel like I am getting more done.”

- Mark Rees, Microsoft NZ National Technology Officer

S&T Turns 60


Our origin story lies with Australia and Sir Arthur Stephenson’s simple desire to revolutionise the potential of hospital establishments. His passion founded the company in 1922, amalgamating the exactitude of the engineering team with the splendour of the architectural field. His unwavering commitment and tireless work in the field saw him receive the honour of a knighthood in 1954, followed by the internationally acclaimed RIBA Gold Medal in 1964.
