A re-worked State House needed a lively new design for family areas.
Simple, understated architecture provides a backdrop for the vibrancy of cooking and eating in this new 30-seat restaurant, situated in a tiny worker’s cottage in Aro Street, Wellington.
Two sets of alterations to a bungalow are linked by the use of thoughtful design and contemporary joinery units.
The rear of a villa with small service areas and an enclosed coal range, was re-designed to give a new kitchen, dining and study area with generous doors and windows opening to an outdoor courtyard.
Designing a focal point for young visitors to the gallery was a small, complex project with a big heart.
The kitchen in an early 1960’s house designed by "Fritz" Eisenhofer, was updated to meet the needs of a busy family.
Use of new built-in joinery units helped organise and connect spaces in this 20th century villa, while respecting its traditional design.
Clever use of a slim space resulted in an unconventional café layout in what was previously the foyer of Lower Hutt’s Little Theatre.
The design of a new bathroom and laundry was a space-saving solution for this house.
The Dowse Art Museum’s foyer was re-worked to allow for an easy-access information desk, a new retail space, reading area, and storage.
The new owners of a home in what was previously the Thorndon Bowling Club pavilion wanted a design that would enrich their family’s daily life while respecting the character of the original building.
For a professional cook and restaurant owner, having a proper dining space at home is essential.
Work focused on the kitchen and eating places in this house, designed by architect Frederick Ost in 1949. The alterations increased the floor area from 80 to 84 square metres.
