The Architecture People is a Waikato based boutique studio which brings a collaborative, people-centered approach to architecture.
Dean Baldock, Director, says everything they do is carefully considered.
“Our designs are shaped by connection to their context and the people that use them. We don’t do stock standard or default. Great design doesn’t come from a template,” says Dean.
The Architecture People has worked with eHaus on several projects in the Waikato and helped many clients achieve their passive house goals. “We love collaborating with the team at eHaus to create not only a high performing home but also a beautiful one. We don’t believe you have to compromise beauty over function or vice versa - they are equally important and that’s how we approach every design”
Small or large. Residential or commercial. Their small, creative team has experience across a range of briefs.

This eHaus fits snugly on its rural Waikato site. The north-facing, open plan living area has many picture windows and indoor-outdoor flow to large timber decks, designed to enjoy the views overlooking the Waipa River. The owners can also retreat to a central media room away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house, or to their Master suite, cleverly separated at one end of the home, away from the other two bedrooms. The light and airy interior spaces feature timber right throughout the house, mainly through the use of beautiful European Spruce timber window frames, nicely contrasting with other black and white fixtures and fittings in the kitchen and bathrooms. The natural finishes of Abodo timber and dark brick on the exterior cladding mean that this home blends into its hillside location, an important factor to its ecologically minded owners.View Project
