Timeless design that would capture views


The opportunity to design this house for Eric and Raemon was the consequence of major distresses they suffered in the earthquake. Hopefully the result would play a part in restoring some normality in their lives.

The brief was for a timeless design that would capture views to the west from the Glenstrae site, provide outdoor protection from easterly winds for outdoor entertaining and for the plan to provide flexibility and purpose for a variety of uses including casual and formal dining off a large kitchen.Y

Architectural Design Manager, Christchurch

As both an architectural designer and the Practice Principal I enjoy the varied challenges involved in what is both a creative and technical profession. In particular, I find it deeply rewarding to be responsible for results that provide life enhancing architectural solutions.

It is also a privilege and at times humbling to have the opportunity and the responsibilities our client's entrust us with and for that we are very appreciative.

Our Design Philosophy

Whatever your preferred building style, we believe that how well your design interacts with its surroundings and natural environment makes all the difference. Having views, whether panoramic or narrow, and optimizing sunlight and shade, are key components that can enhance the pleasure of daily living.

We appreciate just how much character and ambiance good landscaping can add to your living environment, particularly when a site is devoid of expansive natural views. We therefore aim to ensure this attribute is developed with every project.

We also believe that at some point even the most social of us seek sanctuary, privacy or retreat. Hence, we value the opportunity to create tranquil, restful spaces that afford these qualities.
