Welcome to ArchitectureLab

We’re a vibrant client-focused architecture studio.
We love great design and fresh thinking.


Happy Clients = Happy Architects

We truly believe in the transformative power of good architectural design. We know the elevating effect great buildings can have on both the land and the people who live in and use them.

ArchitectureLab is Alastair Crabb and Dan Popham. Working together allows us to get the best results for our clients. Dan is a focused, detail-oriented guy and Alastair really enjoys the big picture vision. Collaboration leads to exciting solutions that stand the test of time.

We both trained as architects in Wellington at Victoria School of Architecture,  then went out and got a heap of experience both in New Zealand and overseas, before returning home and starting ArchitectureLab in 2007.

Our core values are integrity, clarity, experience, practical knowledge, and thoughtful design. We place high priority on relationships within the building industry, aiming to get the best results for our clients.
