About Us

Smooth Lines Architecture

was founded in July 2007 in order for founder Kurk Brady to work closer to his family and to concentrate on his own designs after many years working within other firms, both here and overseas. Kurk has over 22 years of experience having been working in the architecture industry since 1994 after completing his tertiary study. As the son of a Master Plumber and nephew of a Master Builder he grew up working on building sites during holidays and has always had an interest in architecture. This background along with a wide variety of project experience in New Zealand, UK, Dubai and beyond has helped provide Kurk with a great balance between innovative design and practical construction application. At Smooth Lines we believe that good design is an investment that gives outstanding returns and adds more value to your building asset than any other product or service that is put into your project.

We are committed to providing a professional service unique to your requirements competently undertaken with a high level of communication and client interaction, creating a solid trusting relationship between yourself and the design team. As a member of the Designers Institute of New Zealand www.dinz.org.nz Kurk can assure you that we adhere to their code of ethics, hold more than adequate liability insurance and bring accountability and integrity to the services we provide.

Our design philosophy is based around balance, providing a tailor-made building by taking inspiration from the site, the local environment, your own personality, lifestyle and preferences as well as our own experience and innovative ideas. We believe that a building should be able to stand the tests of time by being aesthetically pleasing, structurally durable and capable of performing throughout its life cycle. Along with our preference for energy efficiency, ecological and maintenance friendly construction we believe we can add significant value to your project while saving in running costs. Our attention to detail and finishing is often the key to providing the 'wow factor' without always relying on grand scale features or expense.
