2016 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
This last house in an assembly of established buildings successfully extends the long-standing architectural dialogue between a 'family' of structures. A concept of dual personality is at play: on one side, a communal terrace of decks, stairs and veranda is orientated towards the main homestead and the sea; on the other, a group of spaces fold back and down into private areas suitable for a perfect Waiheke getaway. The materials, construction and quality of the spaces are calmly detailed and seamlessly gathered together. Here, occupants can - and should - do nothing but relax.
