When Duval Met Don. Rebuilding after the earthquake.

25 May 2018

Following their shift from Wellington to Christchurch, HMOA director Duval O’Neill and his wife Bridget fell in love with a little house on a hill designed in the 1950s by local architect, Don Cowey.  Who could have foreseen the tragic events that were to come, but the little house has evolved to pay tribute to its original architect, and represent a new era for the city.  We spoke to Duval about designing his new home following the 2011 Christchurch earthquake.

Complex Simplicity: HMOA’s award-winning house at Waikanae, Kapiti Coast

13 June 2017

Simplicity is deceptively complex at our Waikanae House which won a housing award at the recent NZIA Wellington Architecture Awards. The judging panel observed that the simple external forms of the structure contain a hidden complexity within. “Viewed on approach this house appears to be a simple composition of box forms. However, on entering and circulating through it, the composition reveals surprises, subtle complexities and a deft handling that responds to the site and the client needs.”
