Garden House

Te Aro, Wellington, NZ


Timber lined hallway and stairs with large door looking out to landscaped garden

Built for a Wellington family in the rear garden of their 1900 villa on the edge of the city. This 'garden' house is designed to maximize the available land and sit naturally within a private and tree filled setting. This is achieved through the use of dark stained vertical timber cladding, evoking tree bark, in combination with large areas of glazing to make the outside space a part of the inside. The house has three levels, three bedrooms, a single garage, study, bathrooms and three upper level decks. Garden House was featured in in 2016.
