Leighton Street House
This project started off life with our clients purchasing the million dollar hovel or Grey Lynn dump, depending on which newspaper you read. We were soon tasked with the challenge of turning the hovel into high end home and tripling its size. The 120 year old Victorian villa was restored and relocated on the site to allow for off street car parking. Behind the villa the new addition steps down from the old house onto a polished concrete floor with the addition wrapping around a sheltered north facing courtyard. The main body of the addition is two levels. The lower level is open plan living with decks at each end, there is a glass atrium and open stairs connecting the main bedroom suite on the upper level. A full height void and mezzanine further connect the levels and allow light to filter through and cross ventilation to occur. This project has featured in a number of articles by NZ media outlets, including on TVNZ’s current affairs program Sunday.
