Ar­chi­tect’s own home a win­ner


There’s a ‘‘rich va­ri­ety of site, scale and style’’ in the projects that have won awards in the NZIA Waikato and Bay of Plenty Ar­chi­tec­ture Awards this year.

But the win­ning projects, an­nounced in Tau­ranga on April 28, did all have one thing in com­mon, says awards con­venor and Hamil­ton-based ar­chi­tect Steven Cham­bers.

‘‘At each prop­erty we vis­ited it was a de­light to see the ar­chi­tects and their clients rev­el­ling in the fan­tas­tic en­vi­ron­ments they had cre­ated. It was a tes­ti­mony to the pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships that were formed right at the very start of each project, when briefs were writ­ten and con­cepts were in­ves­ti­gated.’’

Christo­pher Beer Ar­chi­tect took out his sec­ond ma­jor win this month, with his town­house for a Cam­bridge fam­ily that has re­lo­cated from Auck­land. The project won Home magazine’s Home of the Year award this year.

Ar­chi­tect Evan Mayo of Ar­chi­tec­ture Bu­reau won an award for his fam­ily home, win­ning the Hous­ing Ad­di­tions & Al­ter­ations cat­e­gory. The ar­chi­tect awards win­ners are:
