our services

Bluepencil offers clients a full range of architectural, interior design, and draughting services. In the past 10 years, Bluepencil have successfully completed various projects throughout New Zealand.


Bluepencil specialises in residential projects ranging in scale from a new bathroom or pergola, to major renovations, new dwellings and multi unit housing developments. In all of the projects we undertake, Bluepencil strives to come up with innovative, realistic and cost effective design solutions, which maximise the “wow” factor. To obtain the best possible design outcome, we look to involve the client as much as possible in the design process.


The commercial market has been a growth aspect of Bluepencil over the last few years. Recently we have completed designs for numerous medium scale commerical fit outs for general office, retail and hospitality usage. As such, we are conversant with all relevant Building Code requirements and have significant experience working with specialist consultants such as quantity surveyors, services engineers and fire designers.


Bluepencil prides themselves in their level of detail and accuracy. Many companies ask bluepencil to assist them in their overflow of workload and we are more than happy to provide resources on an as needed basis. We can provide a tailored documentation service to suit client demands. We have a thorough understanding of building codes and standards and always seek to maintain excellent working relationships with councils and other consultants.


In many situations the completion of an architectural project is deemed to occur when the building is ready to be occupied. Often the site [garden] and interior furnishings are overlooked due to time or budget constraints. If possible, however, a unified flow through of the design intent, produces a more cohesive end result. Bluepencil has an interior designer who has previously worked in London doing high end apartment fit outs and historic building refurbishments. Since returning to New Zealand she has helped many families to revitalise their living arrangements, be that through a new kitchen or bathroom design, a one room renovation or an entire house refurbishment.
Similarly, a well thought through and sympathetic exterior design always enhances the appearance, value and enjoyment of any new or existing building. This typically involves a detailed planting schedule, for which we always recommend the services of a qualified landscape designer.
There are, however, many hard landscaping elements, such as pergola, fences, paving and decks, which we can design to enhance and complement the design of any existing or new building.


In many cases having a three dimensional impression of a building greatly increases the general understanding of how the final product will be realised. Some people have trouble comprehending two dimensional plans and as such a rendered perspective, or walk through can be very beneficial. Bluepencil uses Sketchup Pro and Photoshop to produce compelling and accurate images and walk throughs to scale.
An example of how rendering could be utilised is to easily preview how a reorganisation of an existing office layout may work.
