Recommended Architects

At Carters Estate we are interested in encouraging a high level of architectural work, along with architectural and landscaping Design Guidelines we have included a selection of local architectural firms that we believe achieve the quality of work encouraged at Carters Estate.

These firms are Canterbury based and are all NZIA architecture practices.

The architectural practice of +MAP Architects was formed in 2001. Collectively the principals Kerry Mason, Huia Reriti and Simon Elvidge bring an impressive blend of design focus and detail experience to each project.

+MAP Architects have an analytical design approach that informs a response which is regionally focused, contextual and sympathetic to the environment. Pragmatic, creative and innovative solutions from the design team ensure +MAP fulfils its mission to create beautiful buildings and spaces and enhance the environment.
