Daily Bread is an entirely transformed space thanks to the Macfie Architectural design team and we are ecstatic with the results of the final product.

Josh Helm - Owner, Daily Bread and Orphans Kitchen

We have worked with Macfie Architectural on a major renovation of our 100-year-old villa. They were visionary in creating the reimaged design and shepherded the end to end project through resource consent and building consent. We would recommend them and their services to anyone unreservedly.

Stephen May - Grey Lynn, Auckland

Macfie Architectural designed a new build for us, which we’ve recently moved into. Their design team immediately understood our vision and was great to work with, from concept phase - through to building consent and completion. We can't recommend them enough.

Jiali Yang - Spinnaker Bay, Auckland

We have worked with Macfie Architectural for over 9-years, and have recommended them to countless clients - their communication, design process and management is absolutely exceptional.
