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 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.


Custom design allows for bespoke solutions to suit peoples unique needs. However the process results in significant upfront design costs, without: allowing the time necessary to consider all the performance; health & environmental impacts; or providing any certainty of 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’re combining the benefits from our best designs and our expertise to develop a range of pre-designed plans that provide our clients with a range of home designs that deliver: healthier homes to live in – through non toxic material specification; better energy performance with integrated passive design and increased specification; ecological responsible – by reducing construction waste and sustainable material sourcing; all while reducing design & build costs – by developing through a crowdfunding campaign & using improved space use & storage to reduce home footprints.

Now we need your help!

We’re developing a full range of these plans, to make them available to kiwis across New Zealand at around one fifth of what it would cost if you engaged us to custom design the same thing for you. And we need your input! To fund this development cost, we’re running a PledgeMe campaign, and looking to get expressions of interest and feedback from you, our valued audience.

Click the link below, and fill in the form. Then we’ll know you’re interested, and will keep you up to date as this project progresses. You’ll get a chance to shape which designs we develop, and let us know what YOU want out of your perfect, healthy home.

Although our Healthy Home Plans will provide a great solution for most clients and sites, sometimes a Custom Design is 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.
