CONTACT BARRY to discuss your new home or renovation project, or arrange for a no-obligation on-site project appraisal.

Here at Barry Connor Architectural Design, we believe great homes begin with great design. And great design always begins with you. By listening, and working one-on-one with you, we’ll share ideas, inspiration and innovation. Your new home will be designed to reflect your personal lifestyle, meet your family’s needs, and optimise the unique qualities of your location. Whatever your budget, your home will come to life through design that combines form with functionality.

Located in Christchurch, Canterbury since 2010, Barry has designed many new homes and home renovations throughout New Zealand. He can help you with your project no matter your location or budget. With his keen eye for detail and a creative approach to problem solving, Barry will work closely with you to realise your aspirations for function, form, quality and value in your home. 

Barry will guide you through the concept development process, giving reasons and rationale behind the design and making the process a stress-free and enjoyable one which brings your vision to life. You’ll experience a virtual walk-through of your concept design created through the latest 3D virtual software.

With a passion for both architectural design and New Zealand’s environment, Barry creates exceptional living spaces incorporating aspects of sustainable design into his concepts, even for those on a modest budget.

Wherever possible Barry’s philosophy is to encourage principles of sustainability and incorporate eco-friendly features. Every design is orientated around the sun, and by working with the natural environment, the home is designed to be both a pleasure to live in, and cost-effective to operate.
