This comprehensive house alteration was in response to the clients’ growing need for space and a desire to reverse an existing plan that was contrary to the site conditions.
Retaining only the subfloor structure, the ground floor was re-planned to bring sun, light and views into the living areas. The new upper level provided the additional space for 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and storage.
The simple composition of 3 white intersecting timber boxes was, in part a response to the environmental conditions and height planes; but more specifically a reference to the New Zealand modern movement houses of the 50’s and 60’s.
