2018 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner
'Shed' and a.k.a Office
The awards jury didn't want to leave this intriguing two-part project that balances lavishness with modesty, darkness and light, and verticality and horizontality in almost equal measure. The architect has ensured that every square inch of space available contributes to the greater good. The ‘Shed’ is dark and moody, neatly vertical beside the main structure. Nestled into a small external basement space, the office is a bright, white counterpoint, embellished by concrete formwork and clever joinery elements that add a sense of subtle compartmentation to this endearing piece of work.
