2020 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
This adventurous and rigorously structured building is a house for the brave, evidencing a confidence that steep sites in Wellington need not stand in the way of cleverly designed and built houses. A concrete core and impossibly thin columns cling to the clifftop, with a 10 metre x 10 metre square forming the basic house structure. Rigorously planned, bold and unapologetic, the design also creates useable external spaces with decks and terraces. An expansive roof terrace with a playful ‘bus stop’ shelter to enjoy the views makes the climb up worthwhile.
