House for Five
Set within a leafy heritage part of Auckland with strict planning controls, the house responds to neighbouring bungalows and villas. It is clad in a rainscreen of white cement panels, with a combination of fixed and mobile screens. The pattern on the screens was abstracted from the decorative fretwork on historic neighbourhood villas, and its roofline echoes the form of surrounding bungalows. The plan wraps around a courtyard which opens to the northern aspect and to views of magnificent totara and rimu trees.
