"Team is a very appropriate word in the name of Team Green Architects. Sian and Mark are a great pairing, as are the people who work alongside them, resulting in a talented, forward thinking, imaginative group.
We chose Team Green because we had worked with Sian before on another project. Our experience has been a voyage, made so much easier by their practical advice and ability to listen to our thoughts and guide us to the right choice.
It is without any hesitation that we recommend Team Green to any future client."
Sue Bulling, Queenstown NZ
"Tom and I loved working with Team Green. They listened to our long wish list and designed an amazing house taking all into consideration. Sian and Marks skills complement each other resulting in a fantastic team, professional, approachable and a pleasure to work with. We love the finished product... What more can we say!?"
Sophie Lucas, Queenstown
"We have been fortunate to have the pleasure of working with Mark & Sian on developing our special retreat in New Zealand.
We have been very impressed with their ability to listen and interpret our ideas and requirements. They have communicated with us every step of the way so that living in Australia and progressing this undertaking has not been a barrier at all.
Although our project is still a work in progress we feel comfortable in the knowledge that the end result will be exactly what we dreamed, a home that both reflects us, and is a building of substance that fits seamlessly into the landscape."
Tiffany & Richard Mathews | Brisbane, Australia
"Thanks for our fantastic home Team Green!
It's been a pleasure working with Sian, Mark and the team to build a home that's warm, healthy, sustainable and looks great too! The Kingspan Tek SIPs are performing brilliantly. These combined with the clever but uncomplicated design incorporating passive principles make the house a truly pleasant environment to live in.
The effort of designing and building an efficient home in our view was definitely worthwhile. We used to always want to be out and about - now we never want to leave!"
Jane Hamilton, Queenstown NZ
"Sian and Mark managed to capture my ideas and formulate them, almost immediately, into a unique design. A design I love.
By embracing elements that I valued then encouraging me to consider alternative materials, features and passive design principals they have ensured my home is a delight to view and to live in.
The team were excellent communicators, prompt, effective and a pleasure to work with. I would enthusiastically recommend working with Team Green Architects."
Margaret Christie, Cromwell NZ
"Thanks to Mark we thoroughly enjoyed the whole design and build process. Marks attention to detail was brilliant. Quite an artist."
Hannah Fox, Queenstown NZ
“We have known members of Team Green for over a decade now and have always found them professionally stimulating, skilful, efficient and very practical. Their local knowledge is invaluable and they have made our recent small extension an enjoyable experience”
Peter and Margaret Blanshard, Queenstown NZ
“Mark and Sian offer a very personalised architectural service.
They are very committed to well designed, warm houses. Our building site was tight, providing some challenges, but Mark and Sian went to impressive lengths to meet our brief around living spaces, sun, views and privacy.
Importantly they have been readily accessible to us throughout our build and have kept a close eye on the small but important details.”
John & Lorraine, Park House Arrowtown NZ
"My wife and I have first met Sian over 5 years ago when we worked with her on a new build project that unfortunately did not proceed.
However, last year we found another section and without hesitation instructed Sian, Mark and their colleagues at Team Green. We have delighted at the meeting of minds over both concept and design and their ability to work very much with the client to produce a design that the client feels really is their own. The whole process is completely collaborative. They also bring a very rare (within New Zealand) ability to advise from a position of knowledge on building a passive house.
Working with Sian, Mark and the rest to the Team Green members on the construction phase, has been a pleasure. They are helpful, knowledgeable and always happy to go that extra mile to ensure the client is informed and supported at every stage. Their attention to detail is most impressive.
We are half a world away and yet we feel totally involved – and the major reason is Sian, Mark and their colleagues ability to communicate. (It also helps having an excellent builder as we do on this project!)
We would unreservedly recommend them to any prospective clients."
