New Zealand house design by Stevens Lawson Architects
Within the rapidly changing neighbourhood our design relates to the rhythms and scale of the historical timber clad villas with their street facing verandahs, picket fences and balustrades. While the house is large, the proportions of the frontage closely relate to the Victorian era houses in the street.

Herne Bay House, Auckland, New Zealand
Date built: 2004
Herne Bay House, Auckland property

Herne Bay House
The house for a family is situated on a quiet street in the inner Auckland suburb of Herne Bay. Honed concrete blocks, dark stained timber and white pre-cast concrete have been combined in an intensive sculptural composition that has a sense of permanence and craft. The cast concrete facade acts simultaneously as a public sculpture, a gift to the street, and as a protective mask for the private spaces behind.
