First Light Studio


In 2011 First Light Studio’s directors took the eco design world by storm, beating international talent from Europe and the Americas to a podium finish at the US Department of Energy’s prestigious Solar Decathlon competition.

The team’s passion for clever thinking and sustainable design remains as strong as ever, and the Wellington-based practice has continued to produce award-winning architecture ever since.

Dedicated to reducing energy and resource use in the construction sector, First Light Studio believes that every kiwi should have access to a warm, comfortable, and healthy home, and firmly believes in a better built future for all of New Zealand.
