It's the little things...

Welcome to Plain & Simple Design House

We are a boutique design and build studio based in Christchurch.

We are advocates of A.C.E Living, because life is too short to live in a sh*t house.
We coined the term A.C.E Living as a simple, no nonsense ideal that we believe is the future of housing. 

Adaptable
Compact
Eco Aware

We strive for New Zealand houses to have a lower impact on the environment, and we do our bit to make this happen by designing and supplying compact, sustainable homes.

Our homes are a lifestyle choice and through simple, functional design provide the space for you to live your best life. 

We understand that houses have a significant impact on our well being and mental health.  We want our homes to have a welcoming holiday feel. With designs that make sure every thing has a place for stress free living, and stimulate positive mental energy in our unorthodox and playful design style. Creating comfortable, multi functional eco conscious homes.

Our house designs are primarily targeted towards one or two people; who enjoy life, care about our planet, and want a fun contemporary home with a connection to the outdoors.

With both trade and design backgrounds, we build with purpose in mind. We ensure that the space is functional, looks great, and is aligned with our and your sustainable ethos.
