Whimbrel is a Christchurch based architectural and structural engineering design practice run by James Carr and Vern Marais.

In our architectural work we specialise in the design of small to medium size residential and commercial buildings, with a focus on carefully detailed and environmentally responsible new traditional architecture and considered alterations to heritage buildings. We can be persuaded to work in most styles if a case can be made for it, from Romanesque to Gothic, Baroque (English, European or Scandinavian), Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, High Modernism or something else entirely if you like.

We also do structural engineering design of new residential and commercial buildings, as well as alterations and seismic strengthening to existing buildings. We are also interested in helping to design new ways of putting buildings together if you have a new system you would like to develop.
