Winner of a Gold Award at the 2015 Master Builder House of the Year Awards, find out more about that here and see a more extensive pictorial journey of this project here.
This Wellington home retains many features of its early 1900’s origins, and deserved the time and effort to find a solution to ensure it lived on.
Much of the internal structure has been re-organised to provide an effective use of floor space – necessary given the many additions and changes the home has had during its 100 years. The external features have been retained and complemented as much as possible, enforcing its historic identity.
The owners had firm requirements of functionality for a young family, as well as aesthetic features at the top of their priority list. Contemporary features were incorporated where they added modern comforts to the living space without distracting from the character of the building.
