    Default Godden Cres House

    Godden Cres House by Dorrington Architects

    Dorrington Architects have designed the Godden Cres House in Auckland, New Zealand. This classic modern house is designed around a number of mature trees, in a park-like setting. The house is designed as a collection of blocks linked by a flat-roofed element, housing the entry and gallery. The gallery space leads you past an interior courtyard and pool and on to the main living area, where a strong connection to the garden is maintained via large glass sliders on both sides. The kitchen, living, dining and outdoor room open on one side to the east-facing garden, and on the other to the pool courtyard. With the sliders open the courtyard becomes an extension of the main living and gallery, connecting this space seamlessly to the rest of the house. The main bedroom suite has its own access via stairs from the entry gallery. Glass sliders can be opened for uninterrupted views over the pool and courtyard to the city and harbor beyond. The gallery is divided into two – public and private, the private hallway can be closed down and links the living area to the children’s bedrooms and service areas.
