Founded in February 2013, Zero Zero is a new type of architectural practice: our studio is a workshop of ideas that transcends geographical boundaries and bridges disparate disciplines. Our common goal is to improve the built environment and the lives of those who experience it.
Drawing on our award-winning international expertise, we form creative collaborations with specialists particular to each project. From small-scale residential alterations to large, complex projects, this approach allows our small core studio to redefine problems beyond usual disciplinary boundaries while retaining personal involvement and minimising cost.
Our multidisciplinary network includes specialists in architecture, engineering, project management, historic conservation, sustainability, landscape and interior design. Together we reach solutions based on a new understanding of complex situations.
Based in Auckland, New Zealand, and Ragusa, Italy, Zero Zero has experience on diverse projects – from large-scale masterplans and infrastructural works to luxury redevelopments and residences. Its portfolio specialises in contexts of sensitive architectural and natural heritage, such as Cava d’Ispica in Sicily and Hyde Park in London. The practice’s maiden project in New Zealand, the Olive Grove House, was shortlisted for Auckland Architectural Association 2013 Unbuilt Architecture Awards.
Zero Zero creates projects that are thoughtful, efficient and thought-provoking.
