Residential Process

On a small but prominent corner in the leafy Hawke's Bay town of Havelock North, this ‘L-shaped’ townhouse is a conversation piece. To maximise the site, this new family home was positioned as close as possible to the West and South boundaries leaving space for a private, sunny courtyard and swimming pool. A stunning, cantilevered box extends right out to the street boundary.

"The accomplished layering and ordering of space and treatment of light and external apertures is complemented by fine but not fussy detailing to produce a very livable, urban family home," NZIA Awards Jury, 2012.
