here's what our
clients are
saying about us

'Ministry are natural team players. The nature of projects in which they have been involved is that they are large, complex, inherently dynamic and frequently challenging. Ministry’s “…whatever it takes!” attitude is an embedded and valued part of their company culture, and is a significant consideration in client discussions relating to the composition of potential teams for important projects.'

Anthony Flannery

Director: Re-Imagine Ltd

‘The best thing about working with Ministry was the easy communication, in depth resources to support the project and access to a wide range of experiences to enable different perspectives and solutions to be brought to the project.’

Dominic Foote

General Manager: Operations

NZ Housing Foundation

‘Ministry of Architecture + Interiors combine quality and an attention to detail with a pragmatic focus on the needs of the client. Their grasp of the technical, contract and legislative requirements are excellent. Above all they provide good value and prompt service in a field where both are often lacking.’

Greg Loveridge

Director: Robt. Jones Holdings Ltd

The design was true to classic principles of elegance and simplicity: both form and function (as it is now proving) entirely meeting the brief and exceeding expectations of the client group.’

Kelston Deaf Education Centre

‘The proposal met all our requirements, and more than met our expectations in relation to the design and use of innovative approaches. It also exceeded our expectations in its highly innovative provision for cultural elements.’

Archives NZ

‘As one of New Zealand’s largest owners of office buildings, we have used Ministry of Architecture + Interiors for a number of projects including interior upgrades of A-grade buildings in Auckland. In addition to using them ourselves we recommend them to prospective tenants.’

Anonymous, Building owner

‘Working with Ministry has been an enjoyable process from the beginning to end. I have no hesitation in suggesting them as ‘one of the best’ in all areas of design through to contract administration.’

Colin Tucker,

Building and Property Management Services

‘We were impressed with how Ministry of Architecture + Interiors integrated appropriate levels of detail at all stages, and the resulting output exceeded expectations at all levels.’

Rakesh Patel,
East Tamaki Healthcare

We have found Ministry to be very good in regards to their design capabilities, efficiency and knowledge of technical requirements and commitment to delivering projects within budgets and site constraints. Their attitude, and their 'whatever it takes' approach to deliver a project from concept through to completion, is reassuring.

Mark Schiele,

Oyster Management Ltd
