renovation of an architectural icon

"I’ve had experience with Architects previously during 3 fairly basic renovations, my one complaint was they have great ideas but sometimes lack practicality and budget awareness – this was not the case with Pru. 


From our first meeting I knew she was going to be different. Her quiet calm approach and ability to really listen and ‘get’ what we wanted, offer expert yet practical advice was refreshing and confidence inspiring. 


Her knowledge of everything building shows she is up to date with building code, and has a wide experience of things outside the standard build, which certainly was our project. 

She had great contacts for everything and worked professionally with all involved on our job. Also her talents with colour and interior design was an added bonus. 


Pru flowed seamlessly from the building plans to the  kitchen colours, lighting, and overall finished look. This was immensely helpful and took a huge pressure off us making bad choices. We absolutely trust her advice.  


Pru has a calm, intelligent perspective – she is all round brilliant. If we ever do another renovation we will absolutely use Pru and we recommend her as a total package, she made our life so much easier because she had the sensible, holistic approach to building and interior design.  


We love our renovation, it’s unique and we thank Pru for this".

Pru from Pinfold Architects was the best designer we have worked with to date. She listens intently, is full of great advice, and works superbly with other contractors/suppliers. Pru took the stress away from us, and did an outstanding job of pretty much project managing our new office space. Pru’s communication was amazing throughout, and she was completely trustworthy and authentic. We could not recommend Pru highly enough, and we are delighted with our new offices in central Auckland. Our sincerest thanks to Pru for all her hard work, knowledge and dedication!
