The family had lived in this early 1900’s Villa for several years before embarking on alterations. It was atypical villa layout, rooms running down each side of a central hallway with a viewto the laundry, toilet and kitchen areas at the rear. These received the best late sun, but were nestled up against a retaining wall holding up the bank rising up to the rear of the site. The house felt disconnected from the rear of the property and the owners needed extra living space and 2 more bedrooms for their growing family.Save this picture!Lower Floor PlanRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsTogether with the clients we decided todivide the house in two, the old villa and the new extension. To accentuate this difference and to connect the house with the sunny rear part of the section we created a series of concrete platforms with woodensteps between creating a new elevated family living space leading up to a larger sunnier rear courtyard. We placed 2 the new bedrooms and a bathroom above the new living space.Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThe roofs and outer walls of the extension are created in the same corrugated color steel as the old house, but arefolded to suit the functions they enclose and dodge the WCC building envelope.Save this picture!Upper Floor PlanThe new living space is located directly at the end of the villa hallway. The space is visible from the front door with the steps and a raised clerestory roof lifting the eye up to the rear of the property and giving a sense of invitation. Glazing of the clerestory is behind timber slat work to filter the late low sun.Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThe original villa has a Matai floor with all other surfaces painted. The new addition has cool concrete floors offset by light coloured timber, white painted wallswith coloured areas.Save this picture!SectionWe hoped there would be a play of light and shade, a gentleness and warmth and an invitation to explore.Save this picture!© Paul McCredieProject gallerySee allShow lessChinese Company Builds 57-Story Skyscraper in 19 DaysArchitecture NewsSmiljan Radić’s Serpentine Pavilion Relocates to BrutonArchitecture News Share Photographs photographs:  Paul McCrediePhotographs:  Paul McCredie Year:  2014 2014 Matai House / Parsonson ArchitectsSave this projectSaveMatai House / Parsonson Architects Matai House / Parsonson Architects “COPY” New Zealandlast_img read more
