architects h + k

Designgroup architects h + k is a Northland based firm specialising in a broad range of disciplines, offering professional services in the fields of architecture, planning and project management.


In 1987 the company was established in Whangarei under the name 'Harrison and King Architects and Town Planners Ltd', and worked mainly in the residential sector. It wasn't until the mid-90s that architects h + k branched out into larger scale projects where they found considerable strength. Today the firm provides specialist services within many architectural sectors including commercial, residential, healthcare, education, aged care, town planning and interior design.


The company is managed by three directors: Roger McClean, Sarah Bertie and Neil Newman and is supported by architects, architectural graduates, architectural technicians, and administration staff.

The collective experience of our project team provides an integrated approach to design and planning.  We not only engage in the design and function of our clients’ projects, but also seek to understand the fundamental values, vision and budgets of the clients we work with.


We believe that team work is the key to a successful project. This applies to how we interact with our clients, other consultants, and the operational staff within our consultancy.  The team approach ensures a diversity of skills is available throughout the design process.


Our team maintains a commitment to the pursuit of excellence in the resolution of our designs.  This quality of service is achieved through the personal and continued involvement of our principals, a focus on pragmatic planning, innovative design and great communication.
