MyKiwiHouse is combining the best practises from Europe and New Zealand into a smart and sustainable home, which is cost efficient not only to build but also affordable to live in.

The result is a home with far superior heating savings (up to 90% better) than standard building code compliant houses.

The entire envelope has a thermal performance which meets PHI Low Energy Building Standard, i.e. energy demand of no more than 27 kWh/m2a (in Queenstown Climate Zone). The house can be Passive House certified at an additional cost.

Standard Specifications:

a) Walls 140mm framing + 45mm service cavity with 140mm + 50mm Earthwool (R-value 5.5).

b) Ceiling 2 @ 195mm Earthwool (R-value 8.2).

c) Intello vapour barrier in wall and ceiling.

d) Air changes per hour at 50 pascals of pressure (ACH50) = 0.5

e) MAXRaft insulated concrete foundation (R-value 4.5)

f) Timber/aluminium clad windows from Elitfonster in Sweden (U-value 0.80 = R-value 1.25):

    • Triple glazing with 2 @ Argon gas in 16mm cavities
    • 2 @ low E glazing
    • Warm edge spacer Swisspacer
    • Codemark Certified for New Zealand

The indoor climate is vastly improved by utilising an advanced heating and energy recovery ventilation system and the triple glazed timber windows , which keeps the entire home warm in the winter (and cold in the summer). Your home will be free from moisture and have a constant supply of fresh air directly from the outside.

Although compact in size, each function in the house has been cleverly designed, including innovative under-floor heating in bathrooms, and with a priority on the large open plan kitchen, dining and living area.

Our homes are built by local certified builders to the highest quality, which is normally only seen in expensive luxury houses. The difference is that we have down scaled to a minimalistic Swedish design, with smart use of standardisation to achieve ultimate cost efficiency.

A home for the future!

Smart Alliances delivers inter-disciplinary engineering, resource management, architecture and environmental solutions for their clients – from simple compliance certification, asbestos management to fully engineered commercial construction, coastal engineering, major civil works, soil testing, waste water, addressing the requirements of the RMA and district plans to the fulfilment of long held dreams of architectural brilliance.


Bildau & Bussmann began as a traditional carpentry business and has remained true to the roots of the craft and to the material wood. As an owner-managed, traditional family business, sustainability is a high priority for us. This applies not only to the selection of our materials, but also to our company culture:

In our opinion, efficient and good work takes place in a framework in which everyone feels comfortable and taken care of – this applies to both our customers and our employees. Particularly in complex projects, it is important to work in close cooperation with each other in order to achieve optimal results.

When doing international business, there are additional challenges due to language and cultural barriers. We therefore attach great importance to providing our customers with employees from their own country. Projects are always understood and developed in the context of their environment in order to achieve the best result.

We don’t see ourselves as just a window manufacturer: our great strength lies – in addition to production – in advice and planning, as well as after-sales service. We see ourselves more as a companion to our customers in all questions relating to wooden windows and doors in their respective project, rather than as a pure supplier. Our focus is on establishing and maintaining long-term customer relationships.

In addition to a high level of personnel commitment, we invest heavily in software development in order to offer our customers all the advantages of digitalization for efficient and error-free communication, from project planning to after-sales service.

Changing lives through great architecture & design. That is our mantra.

To achieve that mantra we believe in the principle of Client-Centric Design. Client-Centric Design is an overarching philosophy that puts our clients at the centre of the design process. It focuses on an approach that prioritises the needs, preferences, and aspirations of the client or end-user throughout the architectural design process. The goal is to create buildings, spaces, and environments that not only meet functional requirements but also resonate with the people who will use and inhabit them. This approach is especially crucial as architecture has a direct impact on the well-being, comfort, and experiences of the occupants.

Client-Centric Design in architecture goes beyond the physical structure; it involves understanding and addressing the emotional and psychological needs of the clients. By placing the client at the centre of the design process, we can create spaces that truly resonate with and enrich the lives of those who use them.

At Imagine Architecture, we believe that good architecture has the power to change lives. That’s why we are committed to using Client-Centric Design principles in all of our projects. Whether we are designing a high quality, healthy home to Passive House standard or a commercial space, we always begin by listening to our clients and understanding their needs. From there, we use our expertise and creativity to craft spaces that are not only beautiful and functional, but also promote health, wellbeing, and happiness. Our tagline, “changing lives through great architecture and design”, reflects our belief that the spaces we design have the power to make a real difference in people’s lives.
