Two Awards for Orkney at the Waikato Bay of Plenty NZIA NZ Architecture Awards

Orkney received an NZIA Local Award (Residential Architecture – House) and Resene Colour Award at the Waikato / Bay of Plenty NZIA NZ Architecture Awards last Friday 29 October.

NZIA Local Award Jury Citation

“This distinctive multi-level home sits apart from its suburban neighbours with its sharply raking walls that mimic the prows of ships on the nearby harbour.  It has been designed with flair and imagination on an angular footprint that follows the shape of the site.  Set around a generous stairway that meanders through the house linking the various parts together, the building is impressive on every level.  Planes, volumes, materials and transitions all work together seamlessly to provide a functional and spacious family living environment.”

Resene Colour Award Citation

“Strong splashes of bright colour are used sparingly against a background of white painted walls, while black concrete stairs and natural timbers combine to complete the house.”
