2021 Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Architecture Awards Winner
This expansive home is expressed as a collection of single-storey wings and pavilions, carefully arranged together with a tennis court, swimming pool and landscaping. The house provides a series of memorable spaces and outdoor areas of varying scale and orientation. This creates a versatile home that is comfortable for a couple or smaller groups, and that can effortlessly accommodate visits from extended family, and larger social gatherings. The material palette is restrained and elegant, with precast concrete used strategically to provide architectural clarity and rhythm to the long elevations. Selected spaces feature higher ceilings, bolder colour and pattern to emphasise their distinct identity and to enliven the interior design.
