We were humbled to receive a housing award for Beach Forest House at the NZIA Wellington Awards ceremony this year. Thanks to all others involved who together made this project and home possible.

Judge's Citation

"This project consists of a two-bedroom house and separate studio tower connected by external decks and courtyards. The forms are arranged in quadrants around a cruciform circulation, which is subtly reinforced in the orientation of the Cross Laminated Timber flooring and ceilings. A floating shelf above the kitchen bounces light from high level windows across the ceiling, giving the space a feeling of elevation whilst providing privacy from the residence up the hill. The detailing is meticulously executed, producing clean simple junctions that contribute to a sense of calm within the spaces."
