Residential Design – Alterations – Additions – Renovations

The best place to start for alterations, additions or renovations is a great vision and some good planning advice.  We invite you to start up a Pinterest board, Houzz ideabook, hard copy scrapbook, or vision board to collate your ideas and wishlists, so that we can work together to achieve your goals, whilst anticipating your future needs as the most important priority. We will guide you through the process, draw your existing house plan, provide conceptual drawings, and once you are happy, work through to the detailed drawings and have them lodged with Council for consent.

Light Commercial Design

Whether it is a new office or workshop, we have experience in the planning and design of light commercial premises including multi-functional work and live style projects. We work in conjunction with local structural engineers to give a cost effective outcome for any light commercial project and can assist in any Resource Consent and planning requirements.


Craig was referred to us by a friend and we found Craig to be very helpful and professional in drawing up plans for us to take to Council. Craig listened to our ideas and managed to put these to paper together with some ideas of his own. We had a difficult small site so not an easy task and also on a fairly restricted budget. Craig was very efficient and got back to us promptly with ideas and answering our queries so we were very happy with his service and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

Craig listened to our raw ideas and transformed them into a realisable home that looks great and that we really love living in.  From the initial planning stages we were impressed with Craig’s ability to adapt our ideas into a workable plan.  The design stage was an easy, streamlined process with good communication and amazing results.  Craig continued to be quietly efficient during the construction and completion phases and was able to advise us when concepts were unworkable or needed revision.  There are some wonderful features to the house and the feel of the spaces is wonderful.  We wanted a character home with light, bright and open spaces that gave a sense of timelessness – and that is exactly what we got!  It has amazing street appeal and, more importantly, a great feeling of flow throughout.  We just love the house and have had so many compliments on it – we even have people walking past stopping to stare and some are even brave enough to knock on the door and ask who designed it.  We would have no hesitation in using Craig again and recommending him to others.

We approached CF Design to turn our renovation ideas into concept drawings and council plans.  Through the design phase Craig listened, provided options and were patient while we changed our minds on aspects of the design.

The result was a set of plans that were approved by Auckland Council without any amendments and a renovated house that we love.  Our old 60’s weatherboard is now a modern open plan house that is warm in winter and cool in summer with great indoor – outdoor flow.

We would recommend CF Design to anyone embarking on a new build or renovation. Happy building.

Craig was a pleasure to work with. His design process was clear, and he helped us pre-empt several issues with our renovations before they became problems. Thanks Craig, our home is so much more enjoyable to live in now!
