I am a kiwi, have been married to Jo for 34 years. We have 5 adult children. Until recently we were based in Dubai where we lived for 25 years. I was a pilot with Emirate Airlines.
We returned to NZ at the end of 2017. We bought a small vineyard just outside Blenheim and decided to build a new house on the property. We had a fair idea of the kind of place we wanted. Even so, an architect was required.
It was Jo who found Jason. He initially seemed pretty bloody young to me but we decided to give him ago and it proved to be a good move. What I particularly like about Jason was the enthusiasm he showed. He was as excited, if not more excited, than me and Jo. Changes to the design were constantly made. He never complained. He provided us with options but never pushed them on us. He listened.
The whole process was a very professional and enjoyable experience. His fee was as good as you will get anywhere in his industry. I have no hesitation in recommending Jason Anderson to anyone who is in need of the services of an architect.

It’s a pleasure to work with Jason and his team. From the day we first contacted Jason (which was when he and Paige were on holiday in Europe, where we kind of followed their trail as emails would be sent back and forth from different cities and countries), till today we feel we have chosen the right architectural designer.
Jason goes the extra mile for you, he wants to see his clients 100% happy before concepts are submitted to Council. He designs and prepares the build to a spec that he would be proud to live in himself. His passion for design shines through his creative solutions and modern ideas.
The selection of tradesmen that he uses are very professional and highly qualified. And, to use his own words when we suggested changes; “Not a problem!”. That nothing was a problem made this journey so fun and easy. We would choose him again.
We can’t wait to move into our Black Beauty on The Hill!

Jason and the team at Anderson Architectural are a pleasure to work with, very professional yet very comfortable and easy to work with. Understood exactly what we were after from the very first meeting, which gave us great confidence that we were working with the right person. He was able to offer some great suggestions and expand further on our ideas. Concept plans were drawn and received within a week, and with a few minor twinks final plans soon followed. A very quick, efficient service that i have never experienced before, dealing with architects. If you are looking for a architect with great skills, great communication, easily relate-able and offering an all round excellent service, then i would highly recommend Jason from Anderson architectural. Thanks Jason, looking forward to the build now.
We commissioned Jason Anderson to design and build our home in 2016 and took delivery of our home in July 2018. During this time, we got to know Jason very well. From the first site meeting, all the way through until final delivery, Jason’s talent, vision, energy and passion was outstanding. In what can be a stressful process for owners, Jason found solutions to challenges and problem solved for us with confidence. He seemed to effortlessly pull everything together and navigated the consent process most efficiently.
We ‘broke ground’ (Oct. 2017) and watched Jason’s design and our dream ‘come to life’ over the ensuing months. We can vouch for Jason unconditionally and have no doubt he will surprise and delight you, as he did for us.
We have recently heard from Jason that he is about to leave his current role working as an Architectural Designer with Gowans Walters & Associates in order to return with his wife to his home town of Blenheim.
Our first contact with Jason was in the design of our Signature Home. He was the key internal Designer employed by Signature. In the end the demands of this Signature Franchise were such that he was mainly based on their premises. Before we got to this stage we had engaged with three other companies.
We felt so comfortable working with Jason from day one. He totally embraced our project and it was quite clear he was very passionate about it from the very first time when we showed him the site that we were considering buying.
Never at any stage did he ever back away from his commitment to us even after it passed the stage where he needed to be involved. At all stages, he was totally engaged and his skills at putting we the customer at ease, allowed us to proceed with confidence.
We had a vision of what we would like to achieve and he quickly took us down this path and interpreted what we had in mind with ease and in a very decisive way. If we wanted changes in the earlier stages he always produced these changes so quickly.
He had obviously found his niche in life and it was truly his passion. Our experience has been such a positive one and the final outcome has been brilliant. So many others since have been so complimentary.
Would we recommend Jason to anyone else? Absolutely! You will have a man who will put you at ease and will want to get to know you so he clearly understands your needs wants, desires.
He will embrace your project from day one and will always be available and within easy reach for any additional input that you may require.
We wish Jason and his wife Paige every success that life can bring. Blenheim isn’t far from Nelson and we would like to keep in contact with Jason.
We are always interested looking at his other designs. We think he will have a very exciting future ahead of him.
