2012 Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Architecture Awards Winner
Bull / McMurray House Alterations
The success of this project lies in the architect’s eloquent acknowledgement of the building’s history, thoughtful reconfiguration of interior programme and complementary new work. The bold central gallery corridor acts as an internal street that integrates and connects the historically disparate parts of the existing house, while establishing a legible program and a family home with a new identity. From overall context to the level of fine detail, the project has been very competently handled.
