Pauanui Beach – Modern-Day Bach
"We engaged Paul Leuschke to design our beach property at Pauanui after a number of failed attempts to create a design with a local building firm. We knew of Paul through buying a Leuschke Kahn-designed house in Auckland, which worked perfectly for our family, and thought that he would be the right person to work with on this journey."
"From the first concept sketch to the final working drawings Paul interpreted our brief perfectly, and it is testament to the process that we changed virtually nothing along the way. We are absolutely in love with the finished product and to now be living in it exactly as we had imagined and how Paul had described it would be."
"We would thoroughly recommend Paul and his team at Leuschke Kahn. It is one of life’s little pleasures to be involved in the creation of your own property, and even a greater pleasure to undertake this journey with such a great team who made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable."
Grant Thornton – Commercial Interior
"This is the second office fit out that we have engaged Paul Leuschke and his team to design and install. We were impressed from the first fit out with the time Paul took to understand our business, and in particular, the way we operate, before he started any of the design. He took the time to understand the 'feel' of the business, its people and its culture – and then started on a design that fitted in with that. He introduced ideas and options that we hadn't even thought about or contemplated, and they worked. Aesthetically, functionally and practically, the end result worked for us extremely well."
"When we had to move premises, we had no hesitation in re-engaging Leuschke Kahn to design our new premises. Although Paul had a good understanding of the people and the business, he again tested and challenged us so that he had a better understanding of 'how we worked', and, while keeping a number of the features from our last premises, introduced new ideas and features that have again made our environment a great space where everyone enjoys working.
"We would not hesitate to use him again, nor recommend him to anyone."

Remuera – Residential Renovation
"Paul Leuschke provided architectural design and observation services in support of our major renovation. His years of experience enabled us to efficiently deal with the complexities of a major renovation, which entailed working with the original structure. We remain very happy with the design and continue to enjoy living in the house."
"We have had the pleasure of working with Paul on two of our projects, and will definitely use him for our next one. Paul challenges the brief, and visualises, designs and delivers better than any other architect we have used previously."
