Hi, my name is Brendan Ariki Laurence.
I am an architectural graduate, artist, and general maker of things based in the beautiful country of Aotearoa New Zealand. I have a passion for creativity, science and understanding the world.
I currently work full time for Elliott Architects and hope to become a registered architect as soon as possible. So, if you're looking to build your dreams come and see our experienced architectural team in New Plymouth.
Below you can find a selection of my work.
I have a huge passion for architecture, the act of sculpting space, painting light, & sketching texture. I am fascinated by all aspects of the architectural process, from finding the spark of inspiration to solving any problems on site. It is a challenging process that is constantly evolving, constantly requiring new ways of thinking. All made worthwhile by that moment you see your idea become reality.

Sometimes I find myself staring at my paintings, being pulled in by their depths, shifts, and changes. I want to recreate this feeling in all my work. To draw the viewer into the work and show them a different world, a world I see in my dreams. In the past my art creation has been haphazard, more a release of emotion, but in the future I aim to hold solo shows of complete collections of related work that tell a story.

Everything that surrounds us is the product of design, the creation of ideas, and the manifestation of creativity. It’s a raw and beautiful thing that adds both functionality and beauty to the world. In this section you will find all my work that doesn’t fall under architecture or art fields. Web design, logo design, future furniture and any other random things I create. It’s a little empty so contact me if you need something new.
