A new house replacing an earthquake damaged historic house on a shared site had the challenge of responding to restrictive body corporate design guidelines and site constraints. A beautifully crafted, gable roofed, contemporary home has the scale, dominance and aesthetic to sit alongside the existing apartment block, and nod to the historic building it replaced.

Visual and physical connection to the shared grounds and Hagley Park were key considerations in the house’s planning and form. Bedrooms and living areas are located over three levels connected by a dramatic triple height, light filled entry and circulation space. The solidity of exterior brick and plaster contrast with the softness of gentle, natural materials and tones inside. NZIA Canterbury Architecture Awards winner 2017.
