VIA architecture Ltd is a specialist residential architectural practice formed in 2016 by Elrond Burrell.
We believe in transforming your quality of life, via architecture.
We do two things:
- Design high-performance homes. Think “Porsche” for houses. Beautiful, modern, world-class comfort, world class energy efficiency. The best technology under the hood.
- Support other architects designing high-performance architecture. Not every architect has the specialist knowledge and expertise needed to deliver high-performance design. We’re the specialists, we bring it to them.
We use the international Passive House standard and design methodology to design high-performance architecture. We transform your quality of life by designing a home that provides optimum living conditions with minimal energy costs.
Most NZ houses, even expensive high-end award-winning houses, have poor-quality indoor air, are cold and draughty in winter and too hot in summer. You pay for a Porsche but only get the performance of a typical runabout.
For your health and quality of life, your home should have excellent indoor air quality, should be draught-free, and should be pleasantly warm in winter and pleasantly cool in summer. And it should cost next to nothing to keep it that way.
A high-performance Passive House home ensures you get the satisfaction of enjoying the best quality of life.
We’re a Wellington Passive House architect but we work all over the country and consult globally with clients in Australia, the UK, the US and Canada.
