Art Deco Alterations

Alterations + Additions to c.1930's Art Deco Residence.

The existing Art Deco house was extensively modified to accommodate a arge family. The original house was positioned close to the street allowing extensive additions to be undertaken to the rear of the house within the body of the site. The additions + alterations were kept in the "Art Deco" style to enhance the intrinsic character to the original house.

John Cornthwaite obtained a DESIGN AWARD for this project from the New Zealand Institute of Architects.
