The Bonita Room Alteration in Nelson, New Zealand by 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.

Our alteration starts with the addition of a room as a 13th birthday present, the ‘The Bonita Room’. The addition of around 12m2 and internal reconfiguration turns the house from a retiree into a home for a family of 5.

The alteration firstly accepts what we all like about the house and then looks for with what’s missing. New work carefully playing darker, secondary and supportive.
