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.
