Corinth House

by

Remuera, Auckland, New Zealand 2005

The original house at 29 Corinth St was constructed in 1963 and designed by the celebrated modernist architect, Vladimir Cacala. Published in an issue of the international journal Architectural Review, it was a fine example of modernist domestic architecture in Auckland. The house has been largely preserved and retains many of the specific details that distinguish the house as worthy of respect. The present owners are well aware of the cultural and historic value of the house and are dedicated to retaining the integrity of the original design.

Our design intention has been to provide modern living necessities with a sympathetic approach to the existing house. To the east of the existing dwelling, the new addition carefully engages with the existing concrete block wall and steps back to retain the overall proportional integrity of the existing house.

Whilst ensuring minimal disruption to the existing structure, we proposed to remove the exiting kitchen to allow this larger space to be used as a second living/games room and office studio space.
