2017 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
Resting in its rural environment this low slung pavilion-like house responds to the client’s wishes for a modernist expression with minimalist detailing and expansive views to its site and beyond. The primary structure is grounded off in-situ exposed concrete walls that define the main spine. The layering of these walls with areas of cedar cladding and carefully crafted joinery insertions creates a composition that belies its simplicity. Although fully glazed between the posts, the eave overhangs combined with the passive and active solar technologies ensure that this highly thought-through home is a joy to live in year round.
