A + E House
Architectural Services: New House
Arthur and Emma wanted a new family home for their newly bought section in Karamu subdivision, Christchurch. Together we investigated what was important for them, and how to best balance their desire for a sustainable, high performing house within a tight budget.
The result is a cleverly designed two-storied solution with delightful spaces that will be enjoyed for their lifetime.
Architectural Services: Alteration
The Kinstead House, located in Whataupoko, Gisborne, is a two-storied bungalow that was built in the 1920's, and once served as the local postmaster's house. Tell Architecture was engaged to re-design the kitchen, while not moving any of the major appliances. The solution is a fresh design that opens up to the adjacent living room with a new island, making it more socially connected, and lifting the house into this decade.
Tell Architecture's director, Abigail Hurst, is a regular contributor to the bi-monthly Architecture NZ publication, also seen on Architecture Now's website.
