Evžen Novák



Sustainability Lead

Founding Director

Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington

Evžen has been a Director of Studio Pacific Architecture since the company’s founding in 1992.

He is a Registered Architect in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom and since 1985 has gained almost 40 years’ work experience in the disciplines of urban design, architecture and interior design. Evzen has particular skills in design and design management.

Evžen’s involvement in community projects has given him a key understanding of the importance of stakeholder input, consultation and optimising architectural solutions where budget is often critical. Evzen has also worked with leading commercial companies and government departments on a range of commercial projects that need to meet the requirements of widely varying groups of users.

Evžen has had a long standing interest in environmentally sustainable design and has been one of those instrumental in moving ESD from a fringe activity into the mainstream of construction thinking.
