Sumner House, Christchurch, NZ
NZIA Local Award 2016

On a narrow sumner section, this modest home – a rebuild options for clients who were red-zoned further up the valley – wraps considerately around a large maple tree and a private courtyard. From a low-slung street frontage, the house subtly bends and folds up to accommodate a second level to the rear. With a simple palette of new and recycled materials, clever planning and intelligent composition, the architects have created a fine contemporary home.
