Our clients’ intention to adapt their villa, on a small, narrow site, evolved into plans for a new house when their neighbours refused to sign a Resource Consent application. The new house fulfils everything they loved about the old villa while also meeting their needs for contemporary living.
“This delightful house on a tight urban site demonstrates clarity and simplicity in planning and formal resolution as well as very good relationship to outdoor spaces... It is distinguished by elegance of composition and a high level of craft, evident in expression of timber structure and ply detailing,” NZIA Awards Jury, 2008.
