People are shaped by the spaces they inhabit. We view architecture and interior design as a responsibility: to create enriching spaces. A considered space, inside or out evokes positive human emotion and with 20 years behind us our focus is firmly fixed on the client. Through innovative thinking, a responsive process and exceptional standards our aim is to always enrich the way people live, work and play.



Dalman Architects is delighted that the country is now back operating at Alert Level 2 status. We will be back working in our Christchurch and Auckland studios from Monday 18th May with a comprehensive Covid-19 Alert Level 2 health and safety protocol in place.

From Monday, whilst we still encourage virtual meetings, if required our clients and consultants will be able to attend our offices for meetings, and we will continue to undertake site visits when required. Our health and safety protocol for both our staff and visitors includes contact tracing, frequent disinfecting of surfaces, maintaining high hygiene standards and 1 metre physical distancing in line with government requirements and the Construction Health and Safety Guidelines adopted by the NZ Institute of Architects.

If you require any further information on our Health and Safety Plan or would like to chat about your project, please feel free to call me or one of our team in Christchurch (03 3665 445) or Auckland (09 905 4828) or you can email us at

We thank all our valued clients and colleagues for their support during this time and wish you continued good health.

Stay safe, stay connected
