Alterations and Additions | Auckland

A 1960’s house which had been extended and redecorated in the 1990s, but required modernisation. The flat ceilings were removed and new skillion ceilings formed with new skylights. Walls between rooms and to the exterior decks were opened up and now all livings spaces, indoors and out, flow together in a clear, light filled space.

New Build  | Otaki, Kapiti

A house for retirement. This is a small house which is designed to be easy to live in and with a degree of future accessibility. While it has a small footprint the wide hallway, tall living space and open plan give a feeling of space and light. The house is designed to use the sun, with wide eaves for summer shading and positioning to allow winter sun in to heat the polished concrete floors for thermal comfort.

New Build  | Carterton, Wairarapa

A new courtyard house to be built on an exposed rural site. The house makes use of verandahs and walkways to shade from summer heat and create spaces sheltered from the strong winds. The house is made up of a series of pavilions and walkways and a tower forming a sheltered courtyard with the intention of closing off the house to the city. Views are created through the house and out to the gardens, distant farmland and the Tararua ranges.
