Abel Smith Street, Wellington, NZ
Originally built in the mid 1880s, this three bedroom heritage listed cottage has been extensively rebuilt and modernised. The bathroom and kitchen have been relocated and the original north facing lean-to rebuilt to accommodate a combined kitchen, dining, living area. A strip of roof glazing along the boundary as well as large areas of glazing to the north enliven this once dark cottage with an abundance of natural light and sun. The project is the last part of the redevelopment of the three heritage properties on the corner of Abel Smith and Victoria Streets.
