SUPER EXCITED TO HAVE WON AN NZIA LOCAL BRANCH AWARD FOR HILL HOUSE !!! / by TESS FENWICK

Super excited to have won a 2018 NZIA Local Branch award in the Residential category for our Hill House!!!

"Like a jewellery box, robust with natural materials on the outside, and gem-like in its interior colours, luxurious fittings and dramatic lighting, this house is exuberant and larger than life. Consistent and rigorous detailing and geometry are strengths of the house, as is the manner in which the architects have pushed the site to the limit to do justice to the ridge-top location and panoramic views. The central axis frames views of Te Mata Peak to the south and Napier Quay to the north and orders the interior, in which beams and columns of substantial concrete are on display, and contrast with vibrant colour. The expanses of open interior space, generous covered cantilevered decks and well-equipped sheltered outdoor spaces, make living a breeze."
