Vance Bentley

Vance is a Registered Architect with a Masters of Architecture from Auckland University.

Vance brings over 15 years’ experience in residential and commercial design to Bonham Architecture & Interiors. Vance’s initial works were on heritage sites and villa renovations in Auckland’s historic areas. A stint in the UK saw him working in construction on high-end hotels in London. Upon returning home, Vance has designed modern high-end residential abodes and heritage renovations. He has also worked on a range of commercial properties, such as new multi-level office suites and penthouses to interior redesigns for small businesses.

From his experience in character-sensitive builds in Auckland’s historic areas and modern high-end residential, he enjoys the challenge of considering the design needs of heritage sites with contemporary styles. His architectural breadth gives Vance a strong understanding of the design pressures and commercial timelines.

With an excellent overview of the entire building process, Vance brings the client through each stage: from initial design sketches, the regulatory requirements of Resource and Building Consent, project, and construction management to delivery.

As a founding signatory of New Zealand Architects Declare – Climate & Biodiversity Emergency, Vance looks to continue to embody these principles throughout the design process.
