about us

Florian Primbs and Christopher Bean founded New Zealand Earth Builders Ltd in 2004 as New Zealand's first company specializing in environmentally friendly, cement-free earthbuilding, light-earth techniques and earthen plasters.

In 2007 Chris emigrated to Germany and Florian continued to operate with a strong design focus under the name New Zealand Earth Builders Design Limited. (nzeb design ltd) Florian has been designing and building cutting edge sustainable homes since the mid 1990s.

Florian holds a degree from the Technical University of Munich, Germany (dipl.ing.arch.) the equivalent of a New Zealand Masters in architecture and is a graduate member of NZIA. In 1996 he received a major European architecture award (Weka prize) for low cost, low energy, timber framed building systems.

NZEB Design Ltd is Florian's company and continues to be dedicated to the design of pure, cement-free, seriously sustainable earth building. Although we are design-focused, we have a network of experienced, qualified builders and traditional craftsmen who help us set sustainable building standards for New Zealand's future.
