2020 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner
This is a thoroughly livable house that sits confidently in its secluded garden environment. A three-level tower is grounded into the site and paired with a single-level pavilion that extends into a parklike setting. All rooms and spaces have a unique character, and qualities that reflect their function. High-quality materials and elegant details are deployed to good effect in developing a contemporary family house influenced by a mid-century style. This is an exuberant and special house that perfectly balances habitation, craft and aesthetics.
