Architecture and interior design studio AW Architects has designed a house in Sumner, a coastal suburb of Christchurch, New Zealand. Completed in 2015, the award-winning Sumner House measures 210m² (2,260ft²).
On a narrow Sumner section, this modest home – a rebuild option for clients who were red-zoned further up the valley – wraps considerately around a large maple tree and a private courtyard.
From low-slung street frontage, the house subtly bends and folds up to accommodate a second level to the rear. With a simple palette of new and recycled materials, clever planning and intelligent composition this is an award winning contemporary home.
