Rawhiti House

Year: 2016
Client: Private

One Tree Hill, Auckland


The Rawhiti house is a character house set in One Tree Hill.  The client had an expanding young family and required a renovation that increased the size of the living space and added a new bedroom and ensuite.  One of the constraints was a recent new kitchen that had been installed.  MAKE worked with the constraint and designed the addition to enhance the character of the house.  One way of strengthening the character was by creating a longer entrance corridor that eliminated the dog-leg circulation.  We wanted to create an addition that looked like the end result was part of the original design, this was the philosophy that informed the design decisions.
