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.

Gibbston Valley House in New Zealand by Team Green Architects

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Article source: Team Green Architects

A young family bought a fantastic sunny section in Gibbston Valley and wanted a Passive House. This house was designed utilising all Passive House principles. It achieves a high level of energy efficiency due to its compact form in which the main rooms are orientated to follow the suns path. Air-tightness, balanced heat exchange, high levels of insulation, and thermally broken windows, all help to mean that this house did not require any heating until well into June, when the fire was first lit.

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.

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.
