About Us

Baxter Design is an energetic team of landscape architects involved with many high profile projects throughout the Southern Lakes region, Central Otago and other main centres throughout New Zealand. We have also worked on projects in Australia and some Pacific Islands as well.

Baxter Design Group, now Baxter Design, was established in 1998 by Paddy Baxter and Jeff Brown. BD is owned exclusively by Paddy Baxter. BD is staffed with other landscape architects, CAD staff, designers and an office manager.

Paddy’s experience included 10 years working for a large practice with responsibilities that included resort and urban design works throughout New Zealand.  At present our job list covers large scale tourism and development projects throughout New Zealand and public spaces including town centre projects and urban design.

We enjoy working as part of a collaborative team and have worked with a variety of architectural firms and others including artists and sculptors.  At BD we provide innovative design solutions to projects in a wide range of environments, and we take pride in shaping the New Zealand landscape for the future.

Paddy Baxter, and Baxter Design, has received several awards during the course of his career including major NZILA awards for the Queenstown Village Green, Millbrook Resort and a National Award for Blanket Bay Lodge.  In April 2013 BDG won an “NZILA Award of Excellence” for the Remarkables Primary School landscaping design.  More recently BD has won an “Outstanding Design” award from the NZILA for the Cromwell Town Centre Upgrade.
