“DreamSpace is our commitment to help build a city where higher density can enhance our social wellbeing, economic vitality, our sense of community, connectivity, and the environment”  

​Annelies studied Industrial Design at Victoria University giving her a passion for design, problem solving and innovation. Having started a business of her own at 23 and taking it to North America, Annelies has always had an obsession with providing the absolute best service and the best designed products to her customers. 


Since returning  back to New Zealand, Annelies has led DreamSpace to embark on a housing revolution to deliver better, more sustainable apartment living which Kiwis can actually embrace. Her vision for DreamSpace, Lake Road is to bring quality of life back to the heart of the city, while fostering the space, privacy and convenience New Zealanders obsess over.

Martin Hebler

Project Manager


Marty’s Bachelor of Sustainable Engineering Systems and Project Management degree is bolstered by his experience rectifying damage caused by the tragic 2011 Christchurch earthquakes. Managing  $5M-160M  projects ranging from tertiary, education, fit out, infrastructure, structural refurbishment and residential projects, he is astute in all facets of Project Management.

When he’s not managing projects for clients, Martin finds other ways to quench his drive. He recently finished renovating his as-is-where-home where he embarked on a hybrid process amalgamating management and the tools.

One of New Zealand's most difficult yet most important goals for the environment is net zero CO₂ emissions by 2050. DreamSpace's number 1 metric for sustainability is thus carbon emission reduction.


By using CLT (cross laminated timber), otherwise known as mass timber DreamSpace will save 162 tonnes of carbon emission versus if we built our core structure in steel and concrete. Other options considered were more common choices like solar power. However when we did the calculations this, at best, it would save our building around 5.1 tonnes of saving over 15 years of the life of those solar panels. With CLT, we've chosen a path x31 more effective.


We are constantly making decisions for materials and construction methodologies considered in such a way that DreamSpace can have the lightest touch possible on this planet.
