Pendrous New Residence in Wellington, New Zealand by Studio MWA – Studio Mikulcic Worldwide Architecture

Sunday, September 30th, 2012

Article source: Studio MWA – studio Mikulcic Worldwide Architecture

The first site visit and site analysis were crucial for this design. Good ”separation” for each functional areas in the house as well as capturing fantastic views on one side towards Wellington – city and harbour and on another side towards Petone shore, Eastbourne and Lower Hutt and further over the  valley, with simple clean lines and forms were my guide which determinate this design.

Kumutoto Toilets in Wellington, New Zealand by Studio Pacific Architecture

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Article source: Studio Pacific Architecture

These public toilets are located at the Synergy Plaza in the Kumutoto Precinct, situated at the northern-most end of Wellington’s waterfront. As well as taking into account practical considerations such as security, hygiene and vandalism, the brief was to create a structure with a sculptural form, something iconic, highly visible and unusual that was also well integrated into the visual and historical context of the surrounding precinct.

Stairway Cinema in Auckland, New Zealand by Oh.No.Sumo

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Article source: Oh.No.Sumo

Stairway Cinema is the third installation by OH.NO.SUMO.

Our ongoing goal is to experiment with architecture and the way it can engage with the public in unique and exciting ways. This project takes inspiration from the site and its inhabitants. The site is the busy pedestrian intersection of two inner city streets in Auckland, New Zealand. It is located between two universities and is a place of ‘unconsidered waiting’. Bus stops and laundromats create a dispersed hard-scape that results in numerous instances of poor quality waiting, while simultaneously failing to provide quality space for social interaction. Members of the public retreat individually into the media offered on their mobile phones. This in turn results in greater separation and dislocation from an existing community that is waiting to be activated. A community must be linked not only virtually but also physically.

Coromandel Bach in New Zealand by Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects

Tuesday, April 17th, 2012

Article source: Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects

The house was conceived as a container sitting lightly on the land for habitation or the dream of habitation. The intention was to reinterpret the New Zealand building tradition – the crafting of wood – the expression of structure, cladding, lining and joinery in a raw and unique way. The construction is reminiscent of the \”trip\” or \”rafter\” dams common in the Coromandel region at the turn of last century. Heavy vertical structural members supporting horizontal boarding. The unadorned natural timber, a sustainable and renewable resource, provides a connection to nature and the natural.

Lynch Street House in Auckland, New Zealand by Dorrington Architects & Associates

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

Article source: Dorrington Architects & Associates

The original 1970’s bungalow on this site had little to recommend it aside from extensive upper harbour views and adjacent sea views from the second floor. The clients were determined to maintain these views, along with the “beach-side” feel of this unique site.
