2017 Auckland Architecture Awards
The entire house is centred on an over-scaled single volume, well-suited to clients who spend their working time in yachting hangars. Such opulence of space is countered by the use of raw materials, lack of linings and unfussy detailing. A collection of intimately-scaled rooms is cloistered around the main interior volume, providing views across and through this space at a variety of heights and angles. The outdoor room, with its oversized fireplace and huge steel French doors, complements the massive interior.
