Here's what our clients say about us.....

"We loved working with Team Green. Their exceptional relentless pursue of architectural perfection, combined with inquisitive approach to seek insights into our family need of space usage led us to have a house beyond what we could have ever imagined. We loved working with both Mark and Sian. The result is fantastic. The design and space we live in became such an enabler for our family."

Carman Family, Queenstown NZ

"Mark and Siân at Team Green Architects went above and beyond our expectations as we tackled our first house build from overseas during the worst of the global covid and supply chain crisis.  Their knowledge and passion for what they do and how they do it was clear from day one right through to the completion. We found them to be very open, honest and easy to deal with as well as being impressed with their thoughtful approach to all aspects of the project. They were experts in understanding how a passive house works, both internally but also with its environment, how the building process works and how the regulations work. Importantly, they were well able to translate all of this to us in a way we could understand and relate to. We thoroughly recommend both Mark, Siân and the Team Green crew!"

Nick and Florentyna Stokes, Queenstown NZ

"Team Green really listened to what we wanted in a home and were able to create a space that I truly love. They both took on board our ideas and challenged us to think differently about some things to get to a great outcome."

Sam Hazledine, Queenstown NZ

"We are enchanted with the home Team Green Architects helped us realise. From our first meeting it was clear how carefully Mark and Sian listened to our vision. They gave us practical advice which alongside their teams’ creative skills, served to expand our dream.

The home we now have is far better than either of us could have imagined, and we are very grateful for the mastery of the whole team to discern all our thoughts and information to create such a beautiful, modern dwelling.

We love our brutalist retreat!"

Alan and Antonia Dove, Queensberry Hills NZ

"We love our house. Our budget was more conservative than some of Team Greens other projects, however the design gave a simple rectangle house the wow factor and we are proud to show it off."

Debs and Dan Torrington, Queenstown NZ

“ We have worked with Team Green ( Sian and Mark) for more than 2 years on our new home. Their work is meticulous and we could comfortably trust Sian and Mark to design the best possible house with minimum input from us. We are thrilled with the results. Team Green are excellent Architects and we can highly recommend them . “

Rosie McKenzie, Queenstown NZ

"Mark and Sian are an excellent team and working with them to design our house was a smooth process, they came up with so many ideas and innovations we hadn’t thought of and the outcome was fantastic, 9 years later and we still love our home, it’s design and features as much as we did the day we moved in. Thank you team green!"

Kirsty and Eryn Cutler, Queenstown NZ

"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Team Green Architects. This is my first time building a passive house. The professionalism and honesty of Sian and Mark have made every decision so simple and straightforward. I have definitely felt heard with what I have wanted within the build, thus I would highly recommend Team Green"

Juliet Fraser, Queenstown NZ

"We truly love our home, especially the winter warmth and summer coolness which is a joy to live in year-round. Team Green nailed the brief, merging efficiency and functionality, with the result being a beautifully designed home, perfectly suited to our needs and budget. We feel so much gratitude, thank you Mark and Sian, from the bottom of our hearts."

Bobbie and Jessie Mulgrew, Glenorchy NZ

"Choosing Team Green Architects to design our home just outside of Queenstown, New Zealand, was among the best decisions we’ve ever made. From the outset, the team demonstrated an exceptional level of professionalism, creativity, and dedication to realising our vision. Nestled in one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world, our home not only complements but also enhances its surroundings, thanks to their ingenious design.

The architects at Team Green are true artists. They seamlessly blended modernity and functionality, ensuring that every space within our home was both beautiful and livable. Their attention to detail is unparalleled, from the strategic placement of windows to capture the stunning views of the lake and mountains, to the choice of materials that echo the natural serenity of the area.

Communication throughout the process was flawless. The team was always available to answer our questions, make adjustments according to our feedback, and keep us updated on the progress. They managed to balance our desires with the practicalities of the build and the environmental sensitivities of the area, resulting in a home that is not only a personal haven but also a testament to sustainable and thoughtful architecture.

The final design exceeds all our expectations. It’s a masterpiece that reflects our personality while respecting and highlighting the natural beauty of Queenstown’s landscape.

For anyone looking to build in Queenstown or anywhere else, we cannot recommend Team Green Architects highly enough. Their creativity, expertise, and dedication are second to none. We are deeply grateful for their outstanding work."

Ceilidh and Simon Calleia Sydney, Australia

"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."

James and Jane Crill, Jersey UK
