    Default Home Renovation in Auckland

    Dramatic Zinc-Clad Structure with Stunning Views

    The original house on this waterfront site was a double-skin brick bungalow with warren-like rooms and little connection with the foreshore. The clients liked the traditional detailing of the existing house but wanted to maximize the aspect and views. Philosophically, a renovation was preferred to a new build and as a result, the focus of the design was on an amalgam of the old and new structures.

    Again, the view is everything. But I really hate that Multi colour glass wall.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Yeah I hate the coloured glass thing. The rest is nice. I like the materials they used.

    I think I'd like the glass wall if different colors were used - something earthy and muted. It looks too pediatrician's office by that wall. The views though? Aaaahhhhh.

    The bathroom with the subway tile doesn't feel like it's even in the same house.....
