2017 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
This project addresses the concept of the small house – a type that is central for architects given our current housing crisis. The bold form and very efficient planning make a distinctive statement and combine that with a very liveable and surprisingly spacious interior. The house references the whare but subtly shifts it as well. In the comfortable suburb of Seatoun, this small project, delivered on an equally small budget, signals an alternative to the profligacy and sprawl that are otherwise undermining our urban and suburban environments.
