NZIA citation:

“This home, the physical expression of a well-understood brief, responds particularly well to the constraints of the site. Within the building envelope, diverse opportunities for occupation have been delivered. Despite the proximity of the neighbours, a level of privacy and shelter has been created that does not compromise any of the incredible views on offer. This house has character and personality, and is a very successful and intelligent response to new subdivision living.”
