Assembly Architects Limited was established in 2005 by Registered Architects Louise and Justin Wright.  It is a New Zealand Institute of Architects practice, now based in Arrowtown.

We deliver residential, public and private commercial architecture throughout the country, historically focussing on Wellington, Wairarapa, and the Queenstown Lakes region.

Our practice is gaining a reputation for well considered and innovative architecture delivered with quality communication and documentation.  Our work is not locked in to a particular style, but is a reflection of the clients requirements and style, the nature of the site, and is a reflection of the tradespeople and materials available to each site.  We enjoy the process of construction, researching building and assembly methods to achieve innovative design.

We are a multiple award winning practice.  In 2012 we were awarded New Zealand Institute of Architecture Awards for projects in Wellington, Auckland and Arrowtown across Public Architecture, Commercial Architecture and Hospitality.

We also won our third Bestaward from the Designer’s Institute, and won the Emerging Design Practice award in the inaugural Interiors Awards.  For our work in prefabrication we won a NZ Wood Timber Design Award for most innovative use of timber to solve a business/ commercial challenge.

In 2013 we won Silver in the inaugural New Zealand Commercial Project Awards, and a 2013 New Zealand Architecture Award from the New Zealand Institute of Architects.

Our residential architecture was featured in HOME Magazine, and we were recently profiled in URBIS.  Our work and practice has also been published in Architecture NZ, Interiors, Simply You Living and the recent book Big House Small House: New Homes by New Zealand Architects published by Random House NZ.

Louise and Justin have both sat on NZIA Architecture Award juries.
