About Us

Mackenzie Architecture is a design focused architectural practice. Bruce Mackenzie has taken over running what was for the past 14 years Borland-Lye MacKenzie Architecture ltd.

Our main focus remains on designing buildings which add value for their owners. We believe that good design enhances  the value and usability of buildings and improves the built environment. We will consider any small to medium size building project.

Our range of experience is wide, including but not limited to:

  • Residential, new as well as additions and alterations. Baches are a specialty.
  • Retail, see below
  • Medical centres
  • School building
  • Warehouses, small factories
  • TV studios
  • Apartments, specialized, one off, fitouts.
  • Heritage buildings, sensitive, adaptive new uses for our old buildings.

Our retail work requires special mention, for over a decade we have designed shops for Pumpkin Patch in 20 countries all over the world. As well as designing each shop we have worked with the company over the years and redesigned the look of the stores 3 times.

Nothing remains the same for long in the fast moving world of the rag trade. We have been privileged to design hundreds of stores for Pumpkin Patch in places as exotic as London, Los Angles, Dubai and Cape Town as well as throughout NZ and Australia.
