Judges' Comments (2013 ADNZ | Resene Architectural National Design Awards)

The judges were impressed at how much had been fitted in by the designer in under 150sq metre floor area. A charming house and the presentation has been very, very well designed. The plan has been very well arranged with a clear division around a slice of circulation that runs through the building, opening up the view to the harbour beyond. Planning is simple and uncontrived. The entrance is truly spectacular, probably the best entrance that the judges saw in the whole of their judging.

The project brief called for a rustic Coromandel take on a contemporary coastal home. Single level living was required for the couple, with a self-contained space below for family. A pole construction design resulted, terracing down the slope, dramatically bisected by a full height entrance and stairwell with views to the gulf. A corten steel façade and locally sourced stone chimney reference the mining heritage of Coromandel.
