Thompson House

NZIA Award Jury’s Citation: “A phenomenal panorama is a driver for this home’s plan. Framed with sophistication and complexity, the views and exterior connections vary as you move throughout the house. Beautiful detailing harks back to Arts and Crafts precedents and provides a richness to the living spaces that matches the views. The architects have married their international clients’ desires to a local sensibility, an understanding of the site and the wider context. The result is a strong piece of architecture well suited to their needs.”
