They Say…

A Page just full of love for Essence Design

We are so happy with the outcome.

The team at Essence is fabulous, warm, responsive and totally committed to getting our project completed. Nothing was too big or too trivial.

Exactly what we need and want!

Robyn and her crew put our plans into Enscape and it is just incredible! It shows me the design brought to life. This has really helped us make decisions and feel confident that the finished output will be exactly what we need and want.

Essence Design & Enscape Software – its where awesome two-dimensional architectural design comes to life for me it is the wow factor! Three dimensions, colour authentic that can be viewed at different times of the day and across the seasons. Robyn can share her ideas with me in our real time collaboration sessions and Enscape shows me what an idea would look like in reality.

Mike’s Glass – WELLINGTON

   “Essence Design were instrumental in designing our new office’s in Petone.  The current premises had an auto electrician space and workshop which Essence Design converted into a warm, inviting office and reception space. They were great to deal with and made the process very easy, as we still had our staff operating from the workshop.”

Michele & Mike – PETONE 

 “Robyn, from Essence Design Ltd, is a lovely person with great knowledge of her industry. She made our New York Loft Apartment project fun and exciting and was always available and happy to answer our many questions. We could not be happier with the result, and highly recommend her.”

Steve Chamberlain – WHAIORA WHANUI TRUST

“It was a difficult task to ensure that we could carry on working effectively while refurbishments of our office took place, but this was planned with great effectiveness and the results have been well worth the challenge.  We appreciate the work you have done for Whaiora over the past two years Robyn. With your broad skill base and design flair to assist us to create a great facility.  You have been a pleasure to work with and we recommend your services to anyone.”

Mike & Tammy – KAPITI COAST

“The technology you have shown us is amazing.  Being able to pop into the studio and view our plants on Revit in real time just makes it easier to understand and we feel connected to the process.”

Smartway Builders – KAPITI COAST

“We have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who wants a great architectural designer with a lot of technical skills and a good amount of design flair.”

Katherine & Dan – OTAIHANGA

“We loved working with Essence Design – certainly, a massive help was their software and the finished state with depth and imagery was unreal!”


“Attention to detail, creative ideas, listening to what we want and including us in decision making has resulted in us getting exactly what we wished for!”

Steve & Linda – LOWER HUTT

“They listened to our ideas, honestly addressed our questions and concerns, and used their knowledge and expertise to work with us in turning our vision into a working plan.  They took us from concepts to Council approved design with minimal stress. “

Dale & Chris – PARAPARAUMU

“Essence have really gone that extra mile – working tirelessly with both ourselves and the Building team to design and engineer a quality building solution at an affordable price.”

Paula & John – KAPITI COAST

“We are so glad we engaged with Robyn and Essence Architectural Design – I cannot recommend her highly enough.  We will definitely continue to use her in the future for any architectural or interior design related plans.”

Shane & Michelle

REVIT has been amazing in being able to give us a vision of what the renovations will look like. The ability to create and view different parts of the house is simply priceless. Robyn has been great to work with and made what can be a challenging process, enjoyable and worthwhile.

Eve & Brent Hayden – WAIKAWA

Robyn’s re-design achieved all that we wanted and more. We used Essence Design Ltd in the past for other projects, and would not hesitate in using them again in future. I can certainly recommend Robyn for both her design work and project management skills.

Viktoria & Astika – RAUMATI SOUTH

Robyn has been amazing to work with! Her ethical and hard working approach, coupled with ensuring everything runs to schedule, has made a normally stressful time, completely stress free. The level of care for her clients is something we have not experienced before in a professional-client relationship. It would be hard to work on a building project in the future, with anybody else.
