"A refined contemporary reinterpretation of the Christchurch modern style. This residence embodies elegant simplicity and highlights the architect’s mastery of detail, with interest created through a balance of materiality, texture, light and shadow. The immaculate detailing highlights artful techniques, including those employed to conceal gutters and vents within the external cladding cavity. A palette of materials in natural tones, ranging from washed brick to timber shingles, resonates deeply with the clients’ heritage, contributing to the overall charm of the design and establishing a satisfying addition to the suburban streetscape."
