Q&A

NZ House & Garden - - HOMES - Kate Clark­son

WE HAD TO HAVE: Walls for art.

TIPS FOR OTHER HOME BUILDERS: Make sure you have an ar­chi­tect and a builder you trust; re­mem­ber there is no such thing as a per­fect house; and, fi­nally, en­joy the cre­ative process. THE FAM­ILY’S FAVOURITE GATH­ER­ING PLACE: Around a fire, inside or out.

THE GAR­DEN IS A PLEA­SURE BE­CAUSE: It’s so peace­ful. After gardening I al­ways feel re­stored, calm and that I’ve had a com­plete work­out.

BOLD­EST DE­CI­SION: In retrospect I guess it was to build an ar­chi­tec­tural house, be­cause it’s un­like any around us. But hon­estly at the time it just seemed a very nat­u­ral thing to do. The ar­chi­tects were friends, we ad­mired their work and we didn’t think much be­yond that.
