2021 Nelson/Marlborough Architecture Awards Winner
This house is a testament to the relationship between the builder-client and architects, who have together created a warm, welcoming house that reflects the collaboration of its creators. This modestly sized home, situated on an impressive, elevated site above Nelson, has a kitchen hub at its centre and tapered ends that feather out to external spaces. Living areas are oriented for different times of day, wind directions, sun, and offer a choice between expansive view or cosy retreat. Every space and detail has been carefully considered and crafted, often with relatively prosaic materials used in unexpected ways to produce a delightful outcome.
