The practice was established in 2017 in Auckland, New Zealand after various joined projects, some dating back to 2013 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Attracted by the natural environment and simpler lifestyle, COPS re-located in 2019 to Wairoa, Hawke’s Bay.

COPS background and experience is in the corporate environment. We had the opportunity to work on high-end commercial, education facilities as well as residential projects in New Zealand and Europe. Our current portfolio includes Commercial and Public projects, Community Living (Co-Housing) developments, Residential New Builds, Alterations and Tiny Houses as well as Furniture Design and Production.

Our passion is in detail and performance. It is crucial for us to follow our projects till their completion and be involved in the construction, detailing and final touch.

Our driver and endless source of inspiration is the environment. Due to the impact of the construction industry, we therefore put high effort into material selection and source, material quality, performance and longevity.

Our hearts are where we can improve the quality of the daily living of an individual as well as local communities by the way of achieving well designed and thermally performing buildings.
