This striking home in Halswell was the joint winner of the Residential New Home over 300sqm Architectural Design Award at the Canterbury/Westland Regional ADNZ Architectural Design Awards for 2015.
This large family home located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on the outskirts of Christchurch features both urban and rural views.
A strong gable form, running away from the street, contains the majority of the home over two levels. Separated from this by a glazed link is another smaller gable form, containing the utility spaces with the second living room tucked discretely above.
The judges felt this home was deserving thanks to its highly polished, well resolved use of simple forms. The architect behind the home is Craig South of Cymon Allfrey Architects Limited.
