Michael Davies

ANZIA, Registered Architect, BA (Hons) Architecture (UK)

Principal Architect

As Principal of Design Partners Michael has over twenty year’s experience in architecture with a passion for changing the world through design and an enthusiasm that has not faltered over this time.

An Essex boy by birth (think Jamie Oliver, but without the accent), a Kiwi by choice. Michael has travelled the world and settled in NZ bringing with him extensive experience across all sectors of Architecture including residential (masterplanning, passive tropical housing, luxury high end houses), commercial, hospitality, civic and Naval architecture. He has extensive experience with high density and mixed-use developments. As density increases and site size reduces quality of architecture and design becomes even more paramount

Michael envisions a future with beautiful buildings working in harmony with our natural environment and free of toxic materials.

He is passionate about the emotive response to architecture, that great feeling of comfort, wonder and excitement or any other emotion that comes from being within a great architectural environment. He believes that good architecture improves and enriches people’s lives.

Having studied and worked as a technician prior to gaining his architectural qualifications Michael backs up his creative design skills with sound technical knowledge.

A young daughter keeps Michael busy these days and he is honing his negotiating skills to perfection with this large scale challenge.
