Best House Aotearoa
Here 21 is our third annual Here Awards issue, celebrating the winners and finalists from the Here Awards.
On the cover: Poppa's Palace, our Best House Aotearoa – a 50-square-metre home on an impossible Grey Lynn site by Oli Booth Architecture. Bounded by a public carpark, a pedestrian lane, a commercial building and a character zone, it's a wonder it was ever built at all. Built to the boundaries, with impeccably designed use of space and a beautiful connection with the garden, Poppa's Palace creates a multi-generational family compound around a shared garden.
The issue also features six other category winners and finalists:
+ Runner-up & New House: Davor Popadich builds a house and heals the land at Hāhei
+ Reuse and Renovation: The impeccable reinvention of a modernist classic by Lisa Webb
+ Colour and Detail: Delightful terrace housing in Manukau by Crosson Architects brings a new neighbourhood to life
+ Interior: Atelier Jones Design creates a kitchen around joy and daily rituals with a deep sense of craft
+ Small Project: Ethan Aish makes a beautiful timber pavilion combvining traditional craft and modern technology
+ Finalist: Architect Tim Nees' own house, a collection of seemingly minimalist white boxes above Taylors Mistake
Elsewhere! We finish our design with Artis, a visitor's centre in the mountains of Nepal celebrates Sir Edmund Hilary, a new space for Public Record and a summer house in an established garden.
