The team at Gaze Commercial is made up of great people who dedicate their passion to something they enjoy. To add to this motivated team, Gaze has recently appointed a new Registered Architect to head up the Design Studio.
Raja Hidzir is Gaze Commercial’s new Design Studio Manager/Principal Architect, and his role is responsible for managing the design studio, including staffing, programming, design delivery, costings and technical requirements. This role also includes the creative and technical review of projects, ensuring all design and technical requirements have been addressed.
Prior to his appointment Raja held principal and associate director positions in leading architectural practices in Wellington and Auckland. These roles encompass all facets of architectural services from concept design through to construction. His experience includes complex building refurbishment works and new commercial, corporate interiors, multi-unit residential, industrial, community and educational projects, some of which received the NZIA and ADNZ design awards. These range from commercial offices, and university buildings to courthouses, fire stations and warehouses which typically involved occupied and operational sites. Key to his experience in these types of projects are his knowledge and skill in dealing with existing structures and building services, and mitigation of risks involved.
With more than 20 years of projects experience in New Zealand and globally, Raja offers a huge amount of experience in his role at Gaze Commercial. This appointment is part of their strategy to rejuvenate their studio and to provide a wider design service from an architectural standpoint.
From taking a comprehensive design brief, to putting together a complete concept and creative design, Gaze will be in extensive consultation with you – the client, and our experienced team will develop the design, and prepare consent plans and construction drawings.
Gaze are with you all the way, by taking care of site management, quality control, and ensuring you have everything you need before handing over the keys.
