This award-winning, stand-out Moncks Spurs residence in Redcliffs uses design to create endless live-ability.
It was awarded the Residential Compact New Home at the annual Canterbury/Westland Regional ADNZ Architectural Design Awards in 2015. The home took out the top Architectural Design Award for designs smaller than 150sqm.
The home features three bedrooms and two bathrooms that draw on a harmonious balance of materials and form. It was constructed to replace a 1928 bungalow that was destroyed in the 2011 Canterbury earthquakes.
The judges felt the design was sympathetic to the bungalow it replaced and presented a very clever twist on a well understood architectural type and the material selection provided depth to the spatial composition.
The architect behind the home is Nic Curragh of Objects Limited.
