Johnston Family Home Additions
Modest but magical: the simple gesture of this addition has changed a family’s life and the use of their home. What began as a laundry addition became a musing on domestic work and the role it has played in New Zealand’s history. Great care has been taken in the selection of utilitarian materials, which are playfully inverted from their usual use, with the cladding in aluminium and joinery in timber. This addition is a contemporary reading of 1960s details exercised with simplicity and soul.
