The Driving Principles that frame our design process
DCA Architects of Transformation (formerly known as Darryl Church Architecture) is an established Rotorua based firm since 1996. Our projects span the length of NZ. Completed works cover a wide variety, demonstrating our adaptability and ability to listen, research, analyse and deliver projects of relevance, function, environmentally sensitive and architectural merit, regardless of building typology.
DCA has won in excess of 50 design awards both nationally and internationally and on an annually consistent basis. Our designs have an edge that is in tune with the unique bi-cultural issues involved in designing buildings for New Zealanders and their organisations.
From concept to completion, the secret of every successful project lies in the constructive dialogue between collaborative and communicating people. We believe our projects have the potential to transform and enrich the lives of clients, inhabitants, public and communities.
We embrace the opportunity to partner with our clients and together we will continue our transformation of the world.
