2022 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
The Sparrow House has been thoughtfully positioned in a field behind a small rise in the land. A modest square floor plan has been mirrored around a centrally located kitchen in true Palladian style to create a full kaleidoscope of bay windows. Built-in seating and covered decks span outward from the centre to extend the full perimeter of the building. This creates panoramic views while providing many sunny spots to shelter from the prevailing winds. This is a deceptively simple house which responds superbly to its environment. It is constructed of materials appropriate to a rural home with workmanship to match.
