Ignite announces new Wellington operations

“Wellington is the natural choice in establishing our fourth New Zealand office.” - Jeremy Whelan, Managing Director

Ignite has long valued the many, and varied, architectural opportunities available in the Wellington region. It is therefore fitting that the practice has formally commenced its new operations in the capital.

Ignite already has a proven, and long-standing, track record in Wellington, delivering its masterplanning, architectural and interior design services.

As one of New Zealand’s leading architecture firms, the expansion reflects the company’s ongoing growth within Australasia since its founding 30 years ago.

The last year alone has seen Ignite manage a host of high-profile projects across sectors including aged care, residential, retail and commercial.

A series of new senior executive appointments will continue to drive the practice’s expansion.

“Wellington is the natural choice in establishing our fourth New Zealand office. We are pleased to create a permanent base to manage our projects within the region, and achieve an even closer collaboration with the many clients and stakeholders we work with there,” said Jeremy Whelan, Managing Director at Ignite Architects.

Ignite now engages over 140 staff across five locations in New Zealand and Australia including offices in Auckland, Tauranga, Christchurch and Sydney. The company is much valued by clients for its commitment to creating innovative, commercially-sound design solutions, and by its staff for its strong culture and commitment to employee development.
