Awards

We don’t go on about it – but people have liked what we’ve been doing over years:


2010

knights_house_awardNZIA Local Award for Architecture, Residential Award for McDonald House

Addition to the beach front site to create private and sheltered spaces while also creating a large communal area. These spaces open into each other and to the beach. The site presented challenges of the afternoon on-shore winds, privacy from beach users, as well as negotiations with council over inundation levels.


2009

knights_house_awardNZIA Local Award for Architecture, Residential Award for Knight House

This is a major alteration of the original house that was a timber framed upper floor, perched on a concrete block base. The need to check the morning surf from the master bedroom and view the beach from the living areas and lower bedrooms while still working within existing block walls, was the plan determinant.


2007

bleibtrea_house_awardNZIA Local Award for Architecture, Residential Award for Bliebtreu House

A secluded riverside retreat that doubles as a family vacation home and an exclusive fishing lodge. The project required extensive alterations to an existing octagonal Lockwood house. The existing spaces were re-organised to express the unusual volume, and to open the house up to the gardens.


2006

Te Kaha awardNZIA Local Award for Architecture, Residential Award for Te Kaha Villa

This is a modest holiday home overlooking Mataerai Bay on the East Coast. Three simple building units step around an existing Oak tree in the centre of the site.


gower house awardNZIA Local Award for Architecture, Residential Award for Gower House

The Gower House is a relaxed family holiday home perched amongst bush on the cliff tops above Lake Taupo. The siting of the house takes full advantage of the secluded location and spectacular views of the mountains to the south.


2005

calder house awardNZIA Local Award for Architecture, Residential Award –
for Calder House

A modest holiday home that nestles into the side of a small basalt outcrop and fans up and around the contour, so that it perches ‘over’ the sea.
