Our History

Alan Simpkin and his wife Michelle first started their Design & Build company in 1993. The aim was to build four homes per year to supplement the design side of the business. This blossomed into 44 homes in the first two years and didn’t slow down. After building an average of 20 homes per year over the following 10 years, the team refocused in 2003 to provide only architectural design, and has concentrated on producing great architecture ever since.

Our Team

The Arcline team is located throughout New Zealand. Our office based teams in Kaitaia, Kerikeri and Whangarei work closely with our other team members in Tauranga, Waipu, Timaru and Invercargill. 

In mid-2017 the build and fitout of the new Arcline Studio was completed, greatly transforming the working spaces and collaboration of the in-house Studio Team. Our experience in designing commercial buildings greatly assisted in the design and choice of key elements in the office spaces, as our goal was to effectively portray the Studio as a potential small home design. 

We created a modern office environment with the use of blacks, whites, greys and timber. The exterior features a stunning blend of black cladding and roofing with a touch of cedar. Feedback from clients and visitors has been overwhelming with many requests to design homes with the exact same style, inside and out.
