Parochially Local; a tongue twister I’ve used throughout my career to capture both, me as a person and my unique architectural focus.

From the headwaters of our braided rivers, across the patch-worked plains. Through vibrant and engaging towns and cities to our beautiful coastline, my simple goal is to lift spirits with architectural excellence through a passionate understanding of this place.

While I’ve been privileged to visit and study some of the most celebrated architecture across the globe; creatively, my roots remain proudly here, Waitaha/Canterbury, New Zealand.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy this collection of architecture.

    Given our differing  architectural tastes, we decided from the outset that we needed an Architect to help mediate and who wouldn’t simply re-jig or clone a house from one they’d designed before. Cymon listened and delivered a unique and exciting home, bespoke and purely for us!

  • Heath Walters, General Manager, Clive Barrington Construction Limited. 
    With such an impressive body of work, Cymon's skill as an architect is well evidenced and undeniable. What can only be best appreciated in person is his nous across the broader spectrum of business. Cymon's experiences in business over a number of years have honed his skills in management, leadership, marketing and finance and he is adept at both creative and analytical thinking. I have enjoyed many conversations with Cymon debating the finer points of business and have found those discussions lively, well considered and highly enlightening.

  • Sam and Charlotte Fleetwood, Fleetwood Construction
    Cymon is an extremely gifted architect, who has mastered the art of creating beautiful homes that combine all of his clients key requests with his unique and timeless style, while seamless fitting into their surrounding environments. Cymon is great to work with. He immediately makes you feel comfortable and confident. His collaborative approach enabled us to achieve our dream family home, not only once, but twice! There was so much we needed to consider but each and every detail was worked through effectively until perfect. We can’t recommend Cymon highly enough.
