Cimino House

Remuera, Auckland. New Zealand – The brief for the project asked for two houses on the same site each with a three car garage, one house being four bedroom for the clients and their grown children and the other house to be two / three bedrooms. The second house became affectionately referred to as the “dinghy”. Inspired by the Lovell Heath House by Richard Neutra – the massing of the form was arranged around a central piazza, which allowed for the comfortable maneuvering of vehicles and unified the arrangement of the two dwellings. Inside the house, the architectural arrangement of space and limited palette provides a backdrop and counterpoint for the owner’s flamboyant taste.
