NZIA Jury Citation: “Tucked away down a discreet right of way, this comfortable courtyard house exhibits a profound calmness. Natural New Zealand materials — basalt from Mt Horrible and tōtara retrieved from rivers in Northland — have been beautifully composed within a clear schema of linked, stone-clad spaces. This is an elegant pavilion perfectly suited to the clients and their collection of art.”
