Cartref Mor Renovation

This house is one of the finest examples of a 1950's Red Brick constructed. Originally built for the Mayor of Auckland Sir John Allum.

We wanted to minimise the intrusion on this beautifully crafted home as little as possible, and forfill the clients brief to modernise the spaces at the same time.

Kowhai House

Residential

The brief for this house was a modern take on a villa. Although not classic villa dimensions it incorporates essential materials and form. Timber joinery, shiplap weatherboards, corrugated roof and a recycled brick chimney.
