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.

Summer has officially ended and we are now hoping the weather gods have taken notice and send us some rain. Despite the arrival of Covid 19 there appears to be no slackening in the demand for our services. Clevedon is set to explode with Watercare’s sewerage to be ready by April 2020. We will see, works are progressing and temporarily inconvenient! Clevedon Cares, a local initiative, with aims to develop Clevedon in a stylish way along the lines of Matakana and Hobsonville, have done great work establishing design guidelines for buildings and putting bridal/ walking and cycling paths around the township. We are set for an exciting 2020 and beyond.
