2016 NZIA Wellington Awards - Commercial Architecture
This totally reworked and extended heritage cottage cleverly maintains its street presence while subtly housing its high tech use. A new metal wall with growing frames for a scented vine is particularly engaging, the sky-lit stairway brings soft natural light to many spaces, and much thought has been given to public-private relationships, especially around the entry and exit. This tightly planned and modest-sized building is action packed.
