Architecture for love AND money!

Book your space for the ADNZ 2013 Spring CPD Seminar Series NOW!


Are you making money while doing what you love? ADNZ’s first CPD seminar of 2013 is designed to offer you the tools and inspiration needed to ensure you are running a profitable business while fulfilling your passion for design. Ensuring you are working in architecture for love AND money.


Establishing her own architectural firm along with Jane Aimer in 2000, Lindley Naismith of Scarlet Architects is no stranger to the effort, skills and drive it takes to create a successful architectural firm. Believing that great work comes from a high level of personal creativity, coupled with in-depth understanding of the practical requirements of the project – Lindley and her team operate under a simply philosophy with award-winning results.


Join ADNZ as she shares an insight into her journey and offers the tools you need to create a successful business – Lindley states that “architectural design is more than just a job. Most of us involved in the field really love what we do, so it is important to establish good business practices to support our passion for architecture enabling us to make a comfortable living.” Lindley further adds that she will “share our strategies for profitable practice with respect to business planning and direction, as well as processes such as preparing fee proposals and managing work and cash flow; demonstrated through a showcase of projects by our practice that have been profitable, as well as those that have been done for love – both either accidentally or by design!”


ADNZ partner with local business mentors and coaches to get the 101 on business planning – ensuring you leave equipped with the skills, concepts and notions needed to grow and manage your business.
