About Shaped Architecture
Affordable architecture for everyone
Our goal at Shaped Architecture is to offer everyone the opportunity to live in a designer home. Too many people settle for what we believe is sub-standard design. By marrying design and functionality with efficient living and affordability, we would like to change that one home at time.
We have a passion for designing space efficient homes and the view that architecture shouldn’t be limited to commercial buildings, concert halls and stadiums. You spend more of your life in your home than anywhere else, so why not enjoy architecture and good design, while you enjoy your home.
Our business model has allowed us to bring together a number of architecturally designed affordable house plans: realising our dream for affordable architecture in New Zealand. By partnering with experienced architectural builders around the country we take the hassle out of building and help you get into your dream home quicker.
One of New Zealand’s most prominent architects, Roger Walker boasts a long and illustrious career.

An award that recognises his lifelong passion and dedication to high-quality design solutions.
