ABOUT
Prau is a Christchurch based design practice established in 2014.

Our portfolio of work shifts across scales, from small interventions, houses, commercial and master planning whilst our approach to individuality remains the same.

Each project has specific contextual parameters, our work is highly responsive to these, questioning and building upon, allowing us to define place through individual architectural interventions. 

Our work explores form and material with emphasis of light, texture and colour. 

Prau is a registered practice of Te Kãhui Whaihanga, NZ Institute of Architects
