2023 Canterbury Architecture Awards Winner
The challenges of designing a family home, one that is sustainable, responsive and made to budget, are at play in this project. Constraint has served to distil the architect’s response – there is unmistakable clarity of thought here. It’s refreshing to see a new, questioning and considered approach to spatial design. The plan and form – evolved out of architectural memories of the site, and responsive to site – were none-the-less innovative. The judges appreciated the care and thought given to the land, neighbours, family and climate, and acknowledge that the architect’s thinking has value beyond the boundaries of the architectural form itself.
