Founded by award-winning architect Jann Hurley in 1998, Hurley Architects has grown to be one of the most respected boutique architectural practices in South Auckland.

Prized for our intimate knowledge of the local area, Hurley Architects are the only NZIA registered practice between Drury and Hamilton. The Hurley Architects team includes three NZRAB registered architects, backed by a highly experienced technical team and talented graduates. We've done our time in Parnell & Ponsonby and escaped to the country to bring you city design flair with country practicality. With in-house dairy farm, equestrian and motorsport experience we are uniquely positioned to understand rural living needs. Our design expertise also means we know where to invest for the wow factor and where to modify your design dreams to suit your budget.

Builders love our plans and the fact we stand by the quality of our drawings. The number of referrals we get from builders we've worked with, as well as previous clients, is a testament to our high standards of documentation. We manage complex construction phases and the flow of documents to get information to the right people to make your build journey as stress free as possible.
