Boatsheds in Auckland, New Zealand by Strachan Group Architects (SGA Ltd.)

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

Article source: Strachan Group Architects (SGA Ltd.)

On a constrained, compact urban site, a stones throw from Takapuna Beach, the three- stepped gables of these black ‘boatsheds’ appropriately reference our boating and beach culture. The sliding forms reveal a solution beyond the standard connotations of a home, a bespoke incubator for the clients’ lifestyle.

Rothesay Bay House in Auckland, New Zealand by Creative Arch Ltd

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Article source: Creative Arch Ltd

This project involved undertaking alterations to an existing family home on the cliff top edge of Rothesay bay, Auckland. The brief included taking advantage of the coastal sea views, providing a modern four bedroom home with separate lounge attached to the master bedroom. The home has been designed around the existing garage and footprint of the existing ground floor, recycling as much of the existing slab and groundwork structures. A combination of cedar shiplap vertical and horizontal, metal cladding and plaster have been used combined with low lying roofs help to break up the buildings form. Working with the existing parameters and layered approach, has resulted in a modern home that rests comfortably between neighbouring high and low properties on a cliff top site.

The Bonita Room Alteration in Nelson, New Zealand by Irving Smith Architects

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Article source: Irving Smith Architects

An architect’s house is a thing to play with, a bit like life.  Perhaps even more so when its an architecture inherited almost unchanged from Alec Bowman’s original 1960 design for a retired couple, and now in dire need of simple things like a kitchen, spaces to fit a family, and a connection to the garden.

Article source: HERBSTARCHITECTS

The Pohutukawa is New Zealand’s national tree, it is known as the NZ Christmas tree as it flowers bright red is summer. Pohutukawas are protected under local authority regulations.

The site with which we were presented was extremely challenging in that it was 90% covered in mature pohutukawa trees, the site being a part of a continuous belt of forest that edges the road along the beach front.

The Crossing in Auckland, New Zealand by Studio2 Architects

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

Article source: Studio2 Architects

The Crossing is a private home built on the original cattle tablelands overlooking Pakiri Beach.

The house fuses together a limited material palette of concrete, blue steel, and oiled cedar into a bold and incredibly dynamic space, allowing the owner (a professional writer) genuine flexibility to entertain, while acknowledging the need for the relative solitude of a working studio space.

Island Complex in Paihia, New Zealand by Bossley Architects

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Article source: Bossley Architects

On an island in the Bay of Islands, four separate buildings discretely occupy an east-facing bay. The houses are light pavilions which promote the concept of ‘roof’ as the predominant element of shelter. The monopitch roofs float above and beyond the spaces, supported on exo-skeletal structures beautifully detailed in wood. Exterior walls are taut joinery frames, offering minimal interruption between inside and out. The boat shed is totally underground, to reduce visual built form in the bay, with the guesthouse above.

Eyrie vacation homes in Kaiwaka, New Zealand by Cheshire Architects

Friday, September 25th, 2015

Article source: Cheshire Architects 

Eyrie comprises two houses near Kaiwaka. Each is barely larger than four sheets of plywood. They are made from wood, are off-grid and autonomous, their outsides burnt black. This project is part polemic, part escape. Holiday homes have become this country’s decadence. Our sub-prime estuarine site permitted a 1500m² palace. It forbade two 29m² cabins. At night we talked excitedly about Malevich’s Suprematism; in the morning we got up and wrote legal submissions on visual density and the attrition of driveways. We wanted a different vision for New Zealand’s coastal future. In these houses a history of prismatic abstraction is conflated with a poetic of small boats bobbing in a sea of grass. There are no doors. One climbs up boulders and in through a window instead. We hoped that in subverting the shorthand language of building these little constructions might feel like something other than – and more than – houses.
