    At Mackit we provide modern residential architecture for discerning clients. We recognise and fill the niche for bespoke modern homes that can be built efficiently and precisely. Whether a new build or a renovation we will design something beautiful, practical and enduring.

    Mackit was founded in 2008 by James Mackie. James holds a Bachelor of Design with Honours, and is also a fully qualified builder, which ensures a seamless project from the first sketch to handing over the key.

    Having your home designed by someone with our building expertise is a huge advantage right from the start. Your home will be designed with the knowledge of what will be possible and practical for your budget. We promise we’ll be honest about what isn’t.

    Inspired by the environment the home will sit in, and the people that will live in it, James loves to find solutions that are innovative and creative, as well as ensuring the design ticks all the practical boxes for you. Meticulous by nature, James runs both the design and construction aspects of the business, assisted by his trusted building teams on both sides of the Rimutakas.

    "We want to sincerely thank you for all your efforts. You are a true professional and an example for the industry to aspire to be like. We are really impressed with your team, brand, professional persona and creative advice. Not only have you delivered this project on time and on budget, you have clearly explained the process to us and provided invaluable guidance and advice where necessary (both from a design and build perspective). For this we are truly thankful. We hear horror stories about major renovations all the time, but for us it's been a breeze. We will not use anyone else for any projects in the future."
