2017 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
Mount Victoria House Alterations
Attention to the nuances of occupation, anthropometrics and the craft of making makes this contemporary addition to the existing villa a delight. Detailing throughout is meticulous and painstaking but appears effortless in the result. Material choice and the junctions of materials set up an equally weighted dialogue with the existing fabric. Resisting the standard inside-outside flow between courtyard and living space results in a refreshing take of this common genre. This altered space must be a pleasure to inhabit.
