+ Projects

Carefully Chosen and

Researched Materials


We have developed a reputation for producing imaginative and ambitious designs within the constraints of existing buildings and sensitive sites in Christchurch, Queenstown, The Lakes District and across other parts of the North and South Islands.

We aim to respond to the particular context of each site and believe that every project should belong intimately to its place. 

We work on everything from new builds to modest alterations.

Come and see us by the sea, New Brighton, Ōtautahi.

ADQ we brilliant , a very talented team that worked tirelessly to overcome many challenges to an end result exactly what we wanted”

“Kurt and ADQ were great to work with on our build. The team at ADQ listened to our initial vision for our “dream home” and interpreted that vision effectively and creatively . They were always ready to liaise with us and we felt supported throughout our design and build journey. Communication with us was open, friendly and collaborative. They offered plenty of innovative solutions and were always Considerate of our budget and objectives. We are so happy with the results.”
