We cel­e­brate the win­ners

We’re de­lighted that Guy Tar­rant’s Point Che­va­lier ‘Court­yard’ house (top right) won the pres­ti­gious Sir Ian Ath­field Award for Hous­ing. The Auck­land home, on a tight tri­an­gu­lar site on a busy sub­ur­ban road was run­ner-up in our 2017 Home of the Year awards and also won our Best City Home. Our Home of the Year – a small, thought­ful de­sign by Christo­pher Beer (right, mid­dle) for a young fam­ily in Cam­bridge – ex­celled in the NZIA an­nounce­ments and was given a Na­tional Award. Ger­rad Hall re­ceived an Al­ter­ations and Ad­di­tions Award for his re-work­ing of a house in Auck­land’s Herne Bay (right, bot­tom), which grafted a pale con­crete ad­di­tion onto the back of a her­itage villa. In Ar­row­town, a cor­ru­gate-clad fam­ily home by Michael O’Sul­li­van of Bull O’Sul­li­van Ar­chi­tects (which fea­tured in the June/July 2016 is­sue of HOME) won a Na­tional Award for Hous­ing. Con­grat­u­la­tions goes to Fearon Hay for two stun­ning projects: their own stu­dio and as­so­ci­ated re­tail in Par­nell, Auck­land, and the Bishop Sel­wyn Chapel, which de­serv­ingly won the John Scott Award for Public Ar­chi­tec­ture. Stevens Law­son’s Gate­way Pav­il­ion, which fea­tured at Wai­heke’s 2017 Sculp­ture on the Gulf, won in the Small Project cat­e­gory. The sculp­tural piece has been sold and will be per­ma­nently re­lo­cated on the is­land. Twenty five years on from be­ing built, 151 Queen Street – a high-rise clas­sic by Ped­dle Thorp Aitken and orig­i­nally known as the Fay Rich­white Build­ing – earned an En­dur­ing Ar­chi­tec­ture award. It goes to show that late-80s mir­ror glass wasn’t all bad.

From top: Guy Tar­rant’s ‘Court­yard’ house won the Sir Ian Ath­field Award for Hous­ing; our 2017 Home of the Year by Christo­pher Beer took out a Na­tional Award; Ger­rad Hall was awarded for an ad­di­tion to a her­itage villa in Auck­land.
