We create modern architecture that seeks to excite, lift the spirits and create a sense of place.
+MAP is a design led studio, formed in Christchurch in 2001.
The practice is a partnership between Huia Reriti and Simon Elvidge, and operates with 15 to 20 staff. We enjoy the continuity of involvement from Kerry Mason, founding partner of MAP.
We work on a broad range of projects across varied typologies, scale and diverse locations.
We strive for creative, innovative, appropriate Architecture.
We believe buildings have the ability to evoke imagery beyond the functional requirements and speak of the people, place and time that they engage with.
A juxtaposition of intuitive and analytical design approaches informs a response that is regionally focused, contextual and functional.
We seek for each project to become a positive legacy for the owner, and for current and future generations.
Sustainability and energy efficiency are core values of +MAP Architects. We take an integrated design approach, with a high level of collaboration between the client and consultant team, to ensure each project is sympathetic to environmental and programmatic requirements.
The future flexibility and adaptability of each project is carefully considered.
We approach each project as an individual challenge, with unique opportunities and constraints.
A high level of collaboration with the client and consultant team informs an innovative and unique response.
We consider these issues to be more important than working in a particular style and hope that each project will be an original interpretation of the client, site, brief and budget.
+MAP projects have received extensive recognition.
