Bau Division

Tauranga, New Zealand
255 Cameron Road Tauranga Bay Of Plenty 3110 NZ

Bau Division is an emerging architecture practice working primarily in the Bay of Plenty and Waikato regions. We aim to create lasting and meaningful designs that are backed up by technical rigour and strategic thinking.

Bau Division was founded in 2018 and is directed by John Baker, a registered architect, certified Passive House Designer and member of the New Zealand Institute of Architects.

John graduated from Victoria University of Wellington in 2006 with first class honours, and has since worked in four notable and award winning offices in Dunedin (Architectural Ecology), Auckland (Architectus), Zurich, Switzerland (EM2N Architekten) and Hamilton (MOAA Architects).

Bau Division will approach any project with creative solutions, clear communication, attention to detail and, above all, care for your design.

If you’re thinking about how to get started with your next building project, get in touch and we’d be happy to discuss.
