Architectural Model Making

We produce the highest quality scale models including exhibition models, display models, design development models and topographical models. Using a confident mix of traditional hand crafting and modern laser cutting techniques we are able to produce a model to suit every presentation requirement. With backgrounds in model making, industrial design, art, architecture, graphic design and illustration our diverse skill base allows us to generate creative and unique solutions for all of our clients.

High End Marketing Models

Frequenting the modern cityscape, the high end marketing model can include a wealth of detail to really show your ideas to the world. With options to include a stunning display plinth or custom made display unit these models are sure to impress both client and potential buyers. Built to a very high level of detail with every colour, finish and texture recreated meticulously these models can be of a very large scale and physical size and will immediately show your project in the best possible light.

Design Development Models

One of the reasons we love to create models so much here at Litchfield + Fields is because we understand the architectural process. Something we believe models are an essential part of. We offer a convenient, fast service of low cost, high quality, design development model solutions, purely with the Architect and the design process in mind. Do you need a quick form model to explore ideas? Do you have an impromptu meeting with a client who finds architectural plans hard to interpret? Or perhaps you wish to have a 3D reminder of your expanding body of work. We have the perfect, cost effective solution for you! Please call for our latest pricelist.

Laser Cutting & Engraving

Laser cutting technology is a welcome part of our model making and as a result we offer a range of services that utilise this equipment. Do you need custom signage, lettering, engraving or even material samples cutting and personalising for a presentation. With our knowledge and experience in this field we can produce a high quality solution to fit your requirements. See our portfolio section further down for examples of our varied work.

Scale models are a proven sales tool and our models have been responsible for generating upwards of 70% of a development’s market sales. This can make the difference between a project becoming reality or staying on the drawing board

3D Printing and Visualisation

Our models also benefit greatly from the introduction of our new 3D printing facilities. Using this new technology we are able to produce mass units for large area models, intricate components to complement large scale models or simply to allow us to better understand a form using a physical 3D print. Talk to us today to see how 3D printing can help you.

3D Printing

Using the Makerbot range of 3D printers we can produce a vast number of prints using Makerbot PLA Filament . Design development, prototyping and scaled building prints are just some of the areas covered by this fascinating technology.

3D Design

We also provide full 3D Architectural design services that will allow us to create a 3D print from even your most basic design ideas. Talk to us about your requirements and how 3D printing can assist your latest project. 

3D Visualisation

Using the same software that drives our 3D printers we can produce a 3D visualisation for you to aid a presentation or simply help with easing your in house workload. If you are interested in a 3D visualisation rather than a physical print talk to us today to see how we can be of assistance.

Happy Clients

Some kind words from our satisfied customers!

  • Huw Parslow, BA(Hons), DipArch, DipBRS. Associate of Archaus Architects Ltd

    “Because of the quality of the workmanship and the detailed nature of the model, it was used for photo-shoots for a Dominion Post article and as the centerpiece for an interview on TVNZ Business Breakfast. The model was an invaluable tool for the visualisation of this complex project, and for allowing potential buyers to engage with the project in a three dimensional way that drawings and other graphics, despite their quality were unable to convey.

    I would not hesitate to recommend the quality of the work, which far exceeded all expectation”.                                                …………………………………………………………………………..

    “The conceptualising of our office building design required a scale model to be fabricated and delivered to India. With Litchfield + Field’s excellent skills, a detailed model was created, with intimate assembly on each level, with the ability to separate parts of the model for clear understanding by the Client and their Investors, all packaged and couriered to the Client.

    The delivery result is visually “mind blowing”, & a credit to Litchfield + Field’s commitment to detail, quality & working with the Architect and Client to deliver the best product for the best value.”

    “We commissioned Litchfield & Fields to make a model of our Smarter Small Home. We had an amazing amount of interest in the model at the Star Home Show and the public were thrilled to be able to see a miniature of one of our homes to visualise. We also had another model of basic rooms made, to be an interactive model for Home Show attendees to ‘design their own home’ which was ingeniously packed away in the display base of the model and very well received.

    Carpe Diem Contracting are thrilled with the service and models and would not hesitate in using Litchfield & Fields again or recommending them to others”.
