Ambience Architecture

Quality architectural design and build projects in Tauranga.

The special meaning of a place, its physical image, particular character and atmosphere that differentiates it from other places.

Never underestimate the power of a great brief

Our initial meetings are great for sharing information and discussing your vision for your project. Creating a project brief is about defining what you want and how you want to live. Chances are this has been rolling around in your head for some time, but we need to get it on paper and make it real!

Client Testimonials

"Working with Scott from Ambience Architecture on numerous design and build projects, we have formed a strong relationship. Being able to work in with Scott, the clients have a huge advantage utilising years of combined experience. Scott's judgement of character and understanding of a client’s requirements is second to none. This is a very valuable attribute to have, especially while designing your largest investments."

Sam Woodham, Director , Woodham Designer Homes Ltd

"These are some of the best plans I have seen in terms of designing to the section and quality of info. Happy to grant dispensation on front door not visible from street because overall look is so good."

Developer: Design review, Three Creeks Estate

"Scott from Ambience Architecture designed our home in Northland in 2012. As the builder, I was impressed with the level of detail in Scott's designs, and having peace of mind in knowing all documentation and design were well thought through before breaking ground made the build process very efficient. Scott has recently designed an outdoor portico for our current home in Hamilton, and we will look for his guidance on our next design and build in the not so distant future."

Clients & Builder: Lauren & Campbell Lee

"Scott took the time to clearly understand what we wanted to achieve with our build and then worked to understand and communicate how this could be achieved on our difficult section – and budget - through a strong, collaborative process. His clear vision, bold features and engaging design would become a stunning “forever home”. Scott’s clear and detailed plans aided a smooth build that he remained involved in throughout, forging a strong partnership with our build team. His commitment to our home exceeded our expectations at every stage – briefing, design and build – and we would highly recommend you get in touch with Scott to design your own “forever home”

Jenny & John Patchell

"I can’t recommend Scott Rowe from ambience architecture enough. He took an idea from my head and created a wonderful home for us. Scott’s detailing is incredible and so well documented. We had no queries from council during building consent and only one query from builders on site. Scott was so easy to work with and his communication brilliant, we are both in the building industry and wanted a very specific outcome. Thank you Scott, for the wonderful job you did on our house we love it!"
