building more of what matters

Meet Space Craft NZ

Nelson's own small house company specialising in the design and construction of beautifully crafted, multi-functional spaces and homes. Our passion is to minimise built areas, while maximising use of available space. We provide the market with a refreshing alternative, based on client focus, clever design and a premium build.

"Building more of what matters to us, means smarter, small design. Using better building materials and constructions methods that are more durable and stand the test of time."


Simon Collins has over 30 years experience in the construction industry. From concrete technology to carpentry and project management, Simon is a dynamic, inquisitive builder; a nurturer of ideas, able to help you design your space or home and fix it in the crosshairs where desire meets budget.  


Keile Johns is the business manager and in house philosopher challenging ingrained socio-cultural beliefs around building larger homes; challenging the norms of conventional design and creating a new standard of construction by using premium quality building supplies and choice finishings. 

"A small space can be as highly functioning and beautiful as a big space."


Current houses are only built to last 50 or so years, we think they should last 200 or more years and are trying to achieve that by using quality design and build materials to achieve this goal. The homes about designed around what people actually need. Focusing on functionality and minimising wasted space.


If there's an inkling in your heart that there has to be a better way to achieve the home you deserve then talk with us today.

Let us help you on your journey toward building more of what matters...
