2018 Wellington Architecture Awards Winner

Greytown Main House

This beautifully detailed house sits comfortably on its site and within its context thanks to the use of forms that reference rural buildings. It is an exceptional backdrop to the client’s extensive collection of art, but the house also performs well in other significant ways. The roof line extends beyond the building to create areas of respite from the Wairarapa summer heat, and the gable roof and timber slats focus attention onto the steel front door, which, once passed, reveals spaces designed to enjoy views that go as far as the Tararua Ranges.
