Architectural & Interior Design

Craft and beauty through a sense of place

Simply put, we love simple design and solutions. We find that they are beautiful when combined and interconnected with the use of natural materials.

Our design philosophy is ‘to celebrate the connection of craft and beauty through a sense of place and materials as well as to understand the patterns of people and the space they inhabit’.  Through the design process, our intent is to guide clients towards their visions, dreams and also make sure it is appropriate to the site environment. 

Sol Design, Ltd., our architectural and interior design practice, has been in business since 2005, is based in Geraldine, South Canterbury.   We also run our straw bale building workshops through our design business.

Each project is simply unique and we provide design estimates based on the scope of the project and site investigations.  That design estimate is based on our current hourly rate which is $95.00 NZD/hour + all expenses.
