Housing for our times

Beautiful is high on the agenda for all Box design/build homes, closely followed by agile design, light-filled interiors, a cost-effective build process, and reassuring owner involvement

Design and build with a difference

Box is a unique in-house design company, and an established construction company whereby your project is a collaboration between the architect/designer, builder and you. 

Box prides itself on producing a design with flair that is both practical and cost-efficient to build.


  • Beautiful, light-filled design is at the heart of Box's ethos – achieved with the design team working closely with you, your site and understanding the practical realities of how buildings go together.
  • The simple process starts with a concept stage, where sketches and initial designs are created and costed, followed by a detailed design stage where interior design and full specifications are drawn up.


  • Registered Master Builders, Box has a track record of delivering beautiful homes and subdivisions, predominantly in the Auckland region. 
  • You are an integral part of the process, regularly meeting with the designer on-site to confirm or make important decisions and observe and enjoy the build process.
  • Projects tend to take between 7 months and 12 months to build, depending on the size, complexity and site characteristics.

Value engineering/beyond the build

  • One of Box's strengths is that the company's design team, build team and cost estimators are all under the same roof – this translates into value engineering the house while respecting the design intentions.
  • Box's commitment to you doesn’t stop at the completion of your home – it’s a relationship that continues long after the project is complete, in terms of any maintenance and even assistance in future marketing/on-selling.

Half the story

This is only half the story of how Box is all about creating light-filled, beautiful designs grounded/shaped by maximising site features and managing any restrictions, optimisation of your budget and maintaining a close relationship between the forward looking designer/builder and you.
