Klein — The Practice

Welcome to Klein. We believe architectural thinking has the power to change lives for the better. In fact, we’ve been doing exactly that since 1991. Our award winning and people focussed practice has delivered transformative design services to government, private businesses and not-for-profit clients throughout New Zealand. It is what we are great at, and what we love doing.

The Practice

A practice for positive change.

With a talented and tight-knit team of nearly 40 staff, Klein is widely regarded as New Zealand’s most experienced and acclaimed health care practice.

It goes without saying that our success and our passion are one and the same. Driven by a love of life-enhancing architecture, we take great satisfaction in creating beautiful spaces that respect regional and cultural influences, and contribute in some way to the wellbeing of people and communities.

Our body of work has strong groundings in the health sector, branching over time into wellness-focused solutions for commercial organisations, universities, retirement facilities and multi-unit residential developments.

While we’re well known for delivering projects with considerable scale and complexity, we equally relish applying our architectural, urban design and interior services to smaller, more intimate environments.
