Te Ari Prendergast


I strive to enhance our sense of place, identity and relationship to others through the physical spaces we inhabit.

Te Ari believes that it is the experience of architecture that is at the heart of the design process, for a design that engages the senses while fostering social interaction and landscape integrity. 

He specialises in realising Iwi aspirations for education, housing and health, delivering authentic and culturally appropriate design outcomes consistent with Iwi and hapu values.
