Our practice concentrates on two areas of work:

  1. Urban – work with an urban design & urban planning focus
  2. Residential – design of private houses

HG_8sUrban: Sills van Bohemen has built a reputation for quality work in the urban design field. This has included:

  • masterplanning;
  • multi-unit housing design;
  • park and streetscape design;
  • urban planning work around District Plan Changes; and
  • authoring and illustration of design guidelines & best design practice manuals.

We consider our strength across all aspects of our urban design work to be clear analysis and conceptual thinking backed up by strong graphic and written communication skills. Clients include Auckland Council, Panuku, Auckland Transport and Kāinga Ora.

LivingRoomResidential: We have maintained a focus on residential architecture since the inception of the practice in 2001 and have completed a number of new houses and alteration projects. Residential services include:

  • site selection and feasibility studies;
  • advice on procurement methods;
  • concept design & resource consents;
  • design development and construction documentation;
  • tendering and contractor negotiation services; and
  • contract administration and client representative services.

We believe successful projects require good communication and earned trust between clients, architects and builders. Our work aims for sensitivity and subtlety in design, whilst ensuring that quality of detail is maintained in project realisation.
