Studio Pacific is delighted to announce that Ellice Street House has received a Wellington Architecture Award in the Housing Additions and Alterations category.
The judge's citation reads: “A distinctive street addition reveals that something is brewing within this villa in the character suburb of Mount Victoria. Book-ended between dark stained timber additions, the retained heritage of the existing home is clearly identified in white. Restraint within the interior of the villa gives way to an unexpected voluminous dining room and theatrically cascading stair leading to a contemporary living pavilion one level below the street. This extensive renovation composes a series of remarkable spatial manoeuvres and effortless sequences of volume and surface.”
