Villa Re-imagined 

Roseneath, Wellington, NZ

Roseneath House  (10).jpg

This design is composed of three distinct forms which look to connect a modern addition to a historic residence. The original house built in 1905 has had various additions and alterations over time which led to a scrambled building. The house has been stripped back to its original form and the earth floor basement beneath is excavated to create a habitable lower floor. A modern addition is created to the south of the existing house and connected with a flat roofed internal 'street' which is perforated with sunlight from above skylights. Verandas are reinstated on the northern side of the existing structure, albeit in a modern form, which opens the house up to its generous front lawn and garden as well as to views over Wellington Harbour.
