Design and build a home with Lockwood

Lockwood can help you design and build your new home. Simply choose one of our customisable modern home plans or alternatively bring your own new home ideas and our design team will create a custom home design just for you.


We each tackle the pathway to new home ownership in our own ways. Some of us find the dream site and look for a home design to build on it; others have a dream home firmly in mind, and work the other way.

Nothing is right or wrong – it’s all about what works for you! At Lockwood, we work with you to make it work, the way you want it to.

If you prefer the convenience and quick delivery of building from an existing home plan, you can choose from Lockwood‘s extensive range of contemporary home designs and sizes. These include single storey, double storey or split-level options. Our house plans can be personalised to suit your specific requirements – quicker than starting from scratch, but still your very own home.

Alternatively, if you have some new home ideas of your own, we’ll work with you to make them a reality. Our design team can breathe life into your ideas with our design and build option.


Home design New Zealanders trust

Lockwood has been helping New Zealanders design their dream homes for decades and we know what it takes to turn an initial house plan into the finished product, as well as how to manage the cost of building a new home.

We can help make the process of building a new home a stress-free and rewarding experience. This begins with developing a home design that is customised to your specific requirements. Our Lockwood designers will discuss your new home needs to ensure that the house you design together suits your budget, lifestyle and site. We can even help you find a suitable place to build.


Design your home with Lockwood

The Lockwood design team will work with you on your house plans until you are completely satisfied with them. Your input is most important at this stage, and our designers will meet with you to discuss all aspects of your home’s design.

This includes helping you take into account site elevation, potential views, size, sunlight, engineering requirements and more when designing your home. You’ll also work with them to ensure your new home reflects your own design preferences.


Contemporary home design options 

The interior of your new home is where you can really showcase your personality. When you design and build with us, not only do you get all the benefits of the Lockwood Building System, but you also get the choice of a range of modern interior textures and colours. These flexible interior options allow you to create exceptional and original design themes.

You can also express yourself with the exterior of your Lockwood home, with any combination of cedar, our superior quarter-sawn laminated pine or our low-maintenance extruded aluminium available to you in various colour options.


A personalised new home solution

At Lockwood, we help you imprint your personality on your new home, shape your surroundings and end with the satisfaction of living in a house that is truly your home.
