Karl is a registered architect with 21 years of experience; he is based on Waiheke Island, a great inspirational place to form the basis of an architectural practice. “I love the art of architecture, for me the entire process of architecture is what I enjoy from design through to the completion of a project is a truly rewarding career”.
The home is designed over two levels to suit the contours of the land & to create a separate adult upper level & teenage lower level. The winged roof forms reflect nature & allow for more natural light to enter the buildings & maximize views. The site is very private the built form allows views to the ocean to the west of & the bush & across the valley and to the east.
No1 Kaipiho Lane
No1 Kaipiho is striking – and for good reason. The Concept Design Architect – Karl Majurey Architects was inspired by famed Architect Renzo Piano’s renowned Miami project, Eighty Seven Park & Arquitectonica’s – Regalia also in Miami, where structure is kept internal which allows cantilevered free formed balconies to be designed externally along with creating large apartments with individual lift access on each level.
The home is designed as two buildings connected with a bridge to suit the contours of the land. The winged roof forms reflect nature & allow for more natural light to enter the buildings & maximize views. Elegant gabion rock cage sculptural frames have been added to the main living building, to the north it acts as a screen from the neighbor’s who are rather close.

Karl Majurey Architect • Waiheke • New Zealand
Being the self proclaimed – tHE ARCHITECT ON WAIHEKe Karl is focussing on marketing with real estate agents all the empty sections on Waiheke & to this end has produced a planning report & aerial & contour plan on all sections to assist purchasers in the process. (250 sections are available) Perhaps tHE SECTION ARCHITECT ON WAIHEKe would be more appropriate.
Karl really gets a kick out of helping people create their vision whether it be on a small or grand scale.” I’m just as happy designing a house alteration as I am working on the larger projects as my portfolio demonstrates.
I offer a free one-hour consultation to any client who needs an opinion on an architectural project that they have in mind.
It has allowed me to meet & work with some extraordinary clients & colleagues, some of whom end up being long-term friends. I have been lucky enough to have, worked throughout New Zealand, in the Pacific Islands (Rarotonga & Fiji), Europe (Spain) & Asia (China) while being based in this beautiful country New Zealand.
Naturally over time a Pacific flare to my work has developed, heavily influenced by the places, cultures & people I have experienced. I have managed to combine the above with innovative technologies & the need for sustainable architecture to create some exceptional forms of architecture.
