Roseneath House Nearing Completion

This one has been ongoing while for sometime but completion is in sight. Scaffold starting to come down around the exterior and a good amount of interior finishing is done. Internal joinery and immediate hardscaping around the house edges are on the way.

‘Suitcase’ House All But Clad

Oct 2017

This small one bedroom house is not far from completion. Being that the owner works for an airline, the site overlooks Wellington Airport and Lyall Bay, and that the size of the house (51sqm incl. garage) reminds you of the luggage that fits conveniently in the overhead compartment of an aeroplane, the suitcase house might be a good name for this project.

State House Addition & Alteration

Here are some images from a project currently under construction in Porirua.

The addition is macrocarpa clad with timber joinery and painted panel infill. Part of the idea is that the raw timber will age nicely next to the older brick cladding of the original state house.

Portfolio Updated

Jan 2016

Hello. We’ve uploaded some more projects onto the portfolio page. This charming little garden studio in Paekakariki on the Kapiti Coast and this stealthy getaway house up in Kuratau next to Lake Taupo.

The photos are a little preemptive in that the projects weren’t quite finished at the time but we will have some nice completed shots online pretty soon.

Also we’ve got a few other completed jobs that we need to photograph for the website so stay tuned as the portfolio will be getting some more content real soon.

We do work in Auckland too…

Sep 2015

We were recently up in Auckland to photograph a couple of projects that were finished last year. One is on the North Shore and the other back down south at Mangere Bridge. We’ve also got some initial photos up of the recently completed house and flat up in Brooklyn, more to come soon on that one…

Wilton Pop Top

Jun 2015

The alteration up in Wilton is cranking along. The guys on site got the roof on before the rough weather hit so the existing house was spared relying on tarps for the real cold stuff. Not far from being closed in, and the deck bridge structure is in place. Awesome day up on site for these pictures catching the last of the winter western sun.

Check out the new jobs in the portfolio

Jun 2015

We just uploaded some jobs on to the web site that were completed over the last year – one office fit out and one print shop fit out.

We have also added a few residential projects. One of which we’ve recently taken through to building consent and another named the PeaBox which has just finished construction. All photos for the built projects are by architectural photographer Andy Spain. Happy viewing….

The main part of the exterior works are drawing to a close for the medical centre. Internal fitout is under way with much of the services going in. Shouldn’t be long till the scaffold is down and the bulk of the building will be properly seen for the first time. New street awning to come in the new year.

Roof just about finished

Nov 2013

Last pieces of butynol to go down and the medical centre will be fully roofed.

Internal layouts for all floors taking shape, first fit for many of the trades about to take place so site is about to become very busy. Aim is to have all cladding and painting done before Christmas break so scaffolding can come down.

Kelburn Renovation

Nov 2013

This project is almost complete now, but we thought it would be useful to put up some images that show the transformation and the scale of what has been achieved. These photos show the creation of the basement garage. After removing loads of dirt and building some serious block walls, we ended up with an airy spacious garage and workshop, in an area that was previously uninhabitable
