Client Testimonials

“Barry and his team at Condon Scott Architects created a unique holiday house for us on a challenging section which far surpassed our expectations and has garnered many compliments. The process from inception to completion was made easy by fantastic communication and the willingness to listen to us, and to hear our ideas. The potential stress of designing and building from afar was removed for us, knowing we could trust Barry and his team to oversee the project and provide us with regular updates. We are delighted with the end result and would not hesitate in recommending Condon Scott Architects.”

Barry and his team turned a long list of general and specific requirements into a house that is a huge pleasure to live in. It takes full advantage of the regions spectacular scenery while being a warm and friendly home. Condon Scott contributed to a building experience which was actually enjoyable for us, without the stresses that are often experienced – we felt we were always heard and understood and that the priorities driving solutions and decisions were our priorities.”

“Barry Condon designed our tiny house which has been featured in numerous magazines and has won design and architecture awards. Small space design required Barry to think outside the box to fit all home features into our house. Our tiny home feels so spacious and comfortable which is a testament to Barry’s great design skills. We wanted an avant-garde exterior and loved the design process of choosing our unusual cladding. We highly recommend the team at Condon Scott for any project of any size.”

“Designing and building a house while residing in another country was a daunting prospect. From the time of our first design discussions, all the way through to the project management of the build itself, the team at Condon Scott were able to create a seamless and stress-free process. The team were able to incorporate our design ideas and preferences and using their local knowledge and expertise, create a house that we as a family are immensely satisfied with. At all times we were impressed with Condon Scott’s attention to detail, level of communication and level of professionalism. We would have no hesitation in recommending Condon Scott to anyone wishing to build a beautiful home.”

“This house is the first of two houses that Condon Scott have designed for Sally and I.

Our 75 acre waterfront lifestyle block for this home, was situated in a location that was highly sensitive. Sarah Scott and Barry Condon used their experience and judgement to navigate the sensitivities with a small team which included a respected Landscape Architect, a Planner and Legal Adviser. Sarah and Barry designed a house that worked within the natural environment, through carefully considered design elements. Upon obtaining a Resource Consent, Sarah and Barry worked closely with a Quantity Surveyor and Builder throughout the build process to ensure strict budget conditions were met.

The end result was a high-quality home with which we were very happy. This property has now been purchased by another family and we have moved onto our next project with Condon Scott Architects, which we are looking forward to completing shortly.”
