McKay Architecture, a boutique architecture practice, has been in business since 1990, providing architectural services to individuals, business owners, and developers. The majority of our completed projects are located throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and scattered all around greater California. In 2012, After 22 years of practice in California, Michael McKay closed the Berkeley office and relocated to New Zealand. We are now based in Wellington and Martinborough, New Zealand.
Most of our projects in California have been completed and we are new focussing on new design challenges in the Southern Hemisphere.
Our first project in New Zealand, a new residence in Martinborough, was completed in 2008 and has been featured in a couple of publications, including Trends Magazine. We are now working on several new residences, including a "nearly off the grid" green design in Northland, and are handling modern and traditional renovations to existing structures (extensions and refits). We are closely collaborating with a couple of New Zealand architects, and working under their supervision, to meet the professional requirements for architectural licensing in New Zealand.
