COATES AVE ALTERATION
Location: ORAKEI | AUCKLAND | NZ
Completed: 1998

The joy of the old ex-state cottage is its charm and solidity. However, the living spaces, kitchens and bathrooms are not often ideal for modern living and entertaining.

That’s why we were invited to refresh this home. The client had a limited budget, but really wanted a more modern environment.

Rather than trying to disguise the renovation, we decided to make a statement. The addition punches through the living space, contrasting strongly with the original building on the outside and adding a new contemporary theme to the interior.
