Assembly is an Arrowtown based architecture practice delivering bespoke architecture with personality, environmental engagement and considered construction. 

While the majority of our work is in housing, we have a reputation for innovation and collaboration resulting in a diverse portfolio including commercial, public and tourism projects and prefabricated buildings.  

Our current buildings in progress can be viewed here.

Assembly have developed expertise in many types of housing, including stand alone bespoke houses across a wide budget spectrum, housing development, and multi-generational housing. Our homes are decidedly individual, representing the diversity of clients and sites, materials and structure. We have expertise in rammed earth homes, recognized with finalist placings for the Terra Award, the first international prize for earthen architecture, and the NZ HOME of the Year.

Registered Architects Louise Wright and Justin Wright established Assembly in Wellington in 2005, and moved to Arrowtown in 2012.  The studio includes a diverse and talented team of architects, architecture graduates, architectural technicians and administrative support.

In 2019 Assembly was a founding signatory to the NZ Architect’s Declare Climate & Biodiversity Emergency.

Assembly is a New Zealand Institute of Architects practice.
