Building or renovating your home is a complex project made more difficult by ‘greenwashing’.  How do you separate truth from hype when it comes to health and sustainability?  Greenbridge’s expert home team walk beside you, using our experience to offer inspiring and regenerative outcomes that achieve your vision and meet your budget.  We can assist, whether you are renovating, tackling a new stand-alone house, or interested in a community-scale development.


Although custom design allows for bespoke solutions to suit peoples unique needs, the process results in significant upfront design costs, often without allowing the time necessary to properly consider performance, health & environmental impacts, or providing any certainty around the final build costs…

Greenbridge’s Healthy Home Plans have been developed to solve these challenges.  Having looked at what’s currently available in the market and not having found what we consider a good solution, we’ve combined the benefits from our best designs and our unique expertise, to develop a range of pre-designed plans that provide our clients with a range of home designs that deliver: lower design costs; healthier homes for to live in; better building performance; improved space use & storage; reduced ecological impact; and a defined build cost from the get go…

Initial plans are pre-selling now!

We’ve done the groundwork to develop a full range of twenty eight floor plans, across four different styles and have done the research to make sure we can deliver on our promises, to make green home design available for kiwis across New Zealand at around one fifth the cost of an equivalent custom design process.

After listening to feedback from our supporters and customers, we’ve chosen seven of these plans that range from a 55sqm one-bedroom home, through to a 135sqm four bedroom, mezzanine home and have developed these up to preliminary 3D models and specifications.  Early versions of two of these designs have previously been designed and built for our clients, so we therefore already have much of the detailing ready to complete these designs through to council consent documentation.

The next phase in the process, is working with customers and completing the remaining research and work required to develop these plans through to council ready plans.  We are therefore pre-selling plans to our supporters to clarify which two or three plans we will develop first.

Although our Healthy Home Plans provide a great solution for most clients and sites, sometimes a Custom Design is still the best solution. A great home design is built on the foundations of a solid project brief, a clear understanding of the site, and knowing all relevant council and other restrictions for the site.  At Greenbridge, we design beautiful, healthy, high performance homes that consistently exceed our clients expectations.  Our team’s unique backgrounds mean we have an in-depth understanding of environmental build practices, along with the ability to create homes that maximise liveability, use space super efficiently, and minimise build costs.

Although each project and client is unique, the three tabs below outline our standard design service offers for custom home design.  Where appropriate you can mix and match the elements of each, or we can create a custom service to match your specific requirements…

Greenbridge can even help you build your healthy home.
