2012 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
The relationship to the garden was the key briefing idea for this house, and it has led to an architectural strategy that is rigorously considered in terms of garden views through beautifully proportioned windows and doors, as well as exquisitely detailed interiors to sit in and look out from. Interior spaces offer rich architectural experiences, ranging from open living spaces that never feel cavernous to tight boat-like spaces that lend strong sectional qualities to the house. The highly successful resolution of architectural planning, detailing and selection of materials testifies to the commitment of and collaboration between client, architect and an excellent builder. This house has a timeless quality; it feels as though it has been part of the site for many years, which is a sign of its success.
