Black House in Christchurch, New Zealand by MCAS-Max Capocaccia Architecture Studio

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Article source: MCAS-Max Capocaccia Architecture Studio 

The brief required a rectangular floor plan, whilst the creation of partition walls not to celling height and small separations between elements achieved captivating interior spaces that detract from the simple form.

The whole of the North façade and part of the West are glazed so that the entire view is accessible from the living area, dining and kitchen.

Upper Queen Street in Richmond, New Zealand by irving smith architects

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Article source: irving smith architects  

Big Box retail is increasingly placed away from New Zealand’s small town centres, taking the life and community vitality of the centre with it. The town of Richmond called big box retail back into the main street, questioning how to maintain streetscape and commercial viability to both large and small tenancies. Big Box can entail up to 100m lengths of uninterrupted walls to the street, a scale and typology seemingly incongruous with a greengrocer or a provincial NZ townscape.

House with Villa Silhouette in Lyttleton, New Zealand by Irving Smith Architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: Irving Smith Architects

House with Villa Silhouette

A house after the Christchurch quakes. One creative home comes down, another goes up, the new silhouetting the old, reminding, resettling, providing lineage.

Where the former villa sat square and inward, the new layers out across the southern view, shaping to the silhouette for light, and framing a greater appreciation of the everyday.
