We’re creating a truly regenerative Aotearoa, through a bold new approach to designing and building spaces. We work to an ethically focussed framework that ensures every project is measurably sustainable - ecologically, socially and financially. Our ahha Impact Framework is a self-developed holistic approach across six domains of; Carbon Ecology Circularity Health & Well-Being Equity & Access and Community & Culture

Our Approach
About Us

With experience across a broad range of cultural, residential, commercial, education and landscape sectors, we’re passionate about helping people build better, smarter and more consciously. As a social enterprise and multi-disciplinary practice, we work alongside clients, community and iwi to undertake projects of all forms and sizes. We work across architecture, design, education, experimentation and art to reimagine spaces, ideas and objects.

We actively push the needle forward by seeking opportunities beyond the typical procurement process and employing them to drive more positive outcomes. We strive to create places that delight, inspire, encourage connection, and enhance well-being.

We are a Certified B Corp

In early 2024, ahha became a certified B Corp and thereby joined a global community of purpose-led businesses that meet high standards of sustainability and social responsibility. ahha's mission of radically transforming the impact of our built environments means that we also want to be a force for positive change in how we work. As a Certified B Corp, it affirms our commitment to creating a future that’s better for everyone, where people and the planet can thrive.

B Corp Certification means that ahha has been verified as meeting B Lab’s high standards for social and environmental impact. These high standards span across five areas: Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers. ahha has made a legal commitment to stakeholder governance and is demonstrating accountability and transparency by disclosing this record of performance in a public B Corp profile.
