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.
Seaview Road Remuera
The home has been renovated from a 4 bedroom, two bathroom, 3 fire places & double garage to a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, home theatre & three car garage with 4 interior fire places & a large swimming pool area & beautiful landscaped grounds.
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.
