This barn-red Home of the Year finalist charms all who visit

Red box. Green soul.

Photograph by Simon Devitt.

A homage to playfulness, this red cube on a Titirangi hillside is like a sculpture made with oversized Lego bricks. Its presence amid the greenery is surprising, yet the contrast somehow speaks of place – and almost everyone who visits is won over by its cheerful form and hue.

Slender, sky-seeking manuka and kanuka populate the section which, beyond the shared drive, drops into a valley. Keeping light-footed on the land was a priority. “We wanted to remove as little bush as possible,” explains architect Ken Crosson of Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects. So the house was placed on poles at the flattish top of the site. “The builders worked with a 1.5-metre margin around the structure.”

Owners Blair and Janis Marler Harkness asked for a modest dwelling, a place to embrace their values of living with just enough – although Janis was still set on squeezing quite a few possessions into the small place. Janis is an artist who works from home while Blair, a journalist, broadcaster and communications advisor, trains and cycles into the city to work. To make the design cost-effective, the architects used a palette of affordable materials, coaxing from them a much richer experience.

Thank the design deities that CCCA’s original idea of a black box was dispensed with. Rescue came cloaked in a red coat, a corrugated-iron cladding, which effectively dodged the drab. Convincing the owners to take this colourful road less travelled was easy; convincing the council was a different matter. Crosson: “We argued that ‘barn red’ was part of the district plan on Waiheke Island, so why not here?”

To ensure interest within a restricted material palette on the straight-sided form, the house was made “dynamic in its skin”, an effect achieved by twisting the rippled sheets to create a pattern of vertical and horizontal lines. Crosson sketched the random design by hand for this patchwork of steel. “I had a sense of where we needed to get to. It was intuitive, a gut instinct,” he says.

Entry is via a timber boardwalk which extends to a small cantilevered platform – a compact space for coffee and contemplation. Inside, plenty of function was required within the 6 x 7-metre template over three floors. At the base are two bedrooms, one with built-in bunks for visiting grandkids. The only bathroom has a low-set louvre window – a vantage point for taking in the ground-level perspective of trees as they emerge from the earth. The laundry tucks into a cupboard alongside Janis’ studio, where a Perspex slider on the east-facing wall allows natural light into the small room.

Up a set of narrow stairs, the second storey is devoted to open-plan living, dining and general mayhem. The third level is a roof deck which hovers at tree-top height. All up, there are 90 square metres of interior action in the tight architectural programme.

What steel is to the outside of the home, pine is to the interior. Akin to a shipping crate, the ceiling, floor and walls are all lined in ply. This humble material fits with the homeowners’ philosophy of leaving any pretension on the mat laid out in front of the re-purposed, black-lacquered front door. This is a house brimming with art and personality. “I am a maximalist,” laughs Janis. “I can spoil any space you let me into.”

At the top of the stairwell, she has tacked the tongue-in-cheek New Year’s resolutions of her 18-year-old granddaughter and her friend. Scrawled on a paper towel, these shun the usual aspirations: “try liver” is one, “stop growing” another.

Within the main zone, the cross-section view takes in a tapestry of trunks. The challenge was to get enough light onto this level and, along with a band of black-steel windows, skylights on the northern edge draw sun into its heart. Janis is a fresh-air fiend; in summer she likes to hear the birds and so the double-glazed windows are open. Manuka blossoms drift in on the breeze.

Assorted memorabilia from the original Marler factory, the women’s fashion shoe manufacturer that is part of Janis’ family heritage, is jammed in amid an all-encompassing display of art. “Living here is not for the faint-hearted,” she says. There is method and order of a kind. The ironing board is a sore point – the only laundry item that is reluctantly allowed a presence on this level.

Photograph by Simon Devitt.

Rimu storage drawers that once housed cobblers’ tools are re-purposed on the kitchen cabinetry and a built-in TV unit. Some of the strips of timber were angled in a wedge to become handles on the door fronts. Green glass bottles march like troops along the kitchen window sill and are filled with pantry staples. “Dad sailed across the Tasman on Logan racing boats and used these for storage stacked on top of each other in the bilge,” says Janis.

On the western face of the home, Crosson designed a pop-out space with floor-to-ceiling glazing that breaks the regularity of the façade and is clad externally in plain solid steel.

The southern elevation, where the stairwell projects, has a glazed roof that follows the angle of the stair but continues way above the roof line. It’s a jaunty glass enclosure, an aesthetic curiosity that is vented to act as a heating-cooling chimney. The roof deck, under all-day sun, overlooks the leafy canopy – an eyrie for humans. In summer the grandchildren pitch a tent on its wooden surface: fledglings in the nest. To anchor it, they tie the guy ropes to “great big water bottles” Janis explains.


Christchurch’s new caffeine hub

Supreme sets up a new shop.

Supreme Supreme – Christchurch. Photograph by Simon Devitt.

Development may feel like it’s taking forever in central Christchurch, but the coffee options just broadened with the opening of Supreme’s new South Island headquarters. The Supreme team worked with architect Jessica Barter of Bureaux to convert a building that has served as a Land Rover dealership and, more latterly, as the Chinese goods emporium Hop Yick.

Supreme Supreme – Christchurch. Photograph by Simon Devitt.

Barter synthesised both these historical influences as she developed the café’s design: the powder-coated steel furniture and splashbacks reference the robust elegance of old Land Rovers (as do the canvas bar fronts), while the soft grey palette and grid patterns routed into the ash cabinetry fronts and wall panels were inspired by an old Hop Yick ledger book left in the building.

Yes, Supreme has outlets elsewhere – Auckland, Melbourne, Wellington – but Christchurch represents a significant investment, not only because it’s the company’s first café with a full kitchen (there are plans to open in the evenings in Christchurch, too). Barista training facilities, a roastery and the South Island team’s offices are also in the building, only slightly separated from the main café space by frosted glass panels.

And while Supreme’s Auckland location, also known as Good One, is justly proud of its improvisational aesthetic, here in Christchurch things are intentionally built to last. “The most important thing was to give the people of Christchurch something that felt like a home, that was cool and crafted and permanent,” Barter says.

See Auckland? Density isn’t scary at all!

Interesting new apartment designs on the waterfront.

Artisan Apartments

Auckland’s flurry of apartment development is yielding some potential architectural standouts. Wynyard Central (above and below), just behind the city’s North Wharf development, is designed by Architectus (the firm that designed this magazine’s first-ever Home of the Year in 1996) and includes townhouses, a five-storey group of pavilions containing apartments on each level, and a larger apartment building.

Daldy Street apartments

The community – along with nearby 132 Halsey Street, an apartment building by Athfield Architects – is being developed by Willis Bond, who have a long history of recognising the value of good architecture in higher-density developments.

The idea, says Patrick Clifford of Architectus, is to create a mix of densities and accommodation options on the site. Architectus is also responsible for the master-planning of the Wynyard Quarter area (as well as the redevelopment of Auckland’s Queen and Lorne Streets), so this development isn’t just about buildings: there’s also been a great deal of focus on creating an appealing pedestrian environment, a fine-grained village-like feel incorporating laneways and Daldy Street’s linear park.

Importantly, the wider quarter mixes business, cultural and residential uses: the innovation precinct/high-tech business hub GridAKL is just down the street, and the Auckland Theatre Company’s new home, Moller Architects’ ASB Waterfront Theatre, will open in 2016 behind ASB’s award-winning headquarters (designed by Australian firm BVN Donovan Hill with Jasmax).

It’s a development that will, hopefully, show Aucklanders that density done well – and mixing residential and business functions in a single neighbourhood – needn’t be scary at all.

New Zealand design’s new Paris home

The Moaroom’s new, more public French face.

Some of New Zealand’s best designers have a new shopfront in Paris, thanks to the Moaroom. The store, run by expat New Zealander Roderick Fry and his French partner, Laurence Varga, has just moved from a very chic former garage to a new spot much more visible to passers-by. Here, Roderick Fry tells us about the move.

Moaroom Paris. Photograph by Simon Devitt.

HOME What made you want to move?
Roderick Fry It was time to have better public visibility with the collection as a ‘collection’. We have a really full New Zealand design catalogue now, which between David Trubridge’s and my own work, has items that have been gaining respect and volume in the market for between five and 10 years – but also, since we started working with Resident [Simon James’ furniture brand], a lot of variation and new items too. Initially, to launch our designers we purposely worked with other shops in Paris who put the collections beside those of all of the world’s best. But with David’s work now in the Pompidou Centre, and the fact that those big design shops have limits and can’t always promise visibility to all their brands – the time had come to curate our own permanent presentation.

The space we were in, an old garage near Republique, was a fantastic working environment, and a nice big space to show work to architects – but because it didn’t have a street window we largely missed out on any word of mouth, and journalists were reticent to suggest the space to their readers who might have had trouble finding us. We also found that most architects would like to see a new collection just by dropping by when they have time rather than phoning and organizing a specific presentation time.

HOME Where is your new space, and what’s good about it?
Roderick Fry It’s five minutes’ walk east of the Marais, just on the other side of the Bastille. The area is best known for the Marché d’Aligre, which is 100 metres from the shop. It’s arguably Paris’s best food market, which in the weekends is a great place to do one’s food shopping, but also have a coffee and listen to some street music. We sell a lot to people in the area, but people from completely the other side of Paris are quite happy to visit us as they know they’ll also find a good café and do some good window shopping around us. For Paris’s interior architects it’s been the hub of furniture making and design since before Cook made his way to New Zealand – and although the majority of workshops have moved out of the area their textile suppliers and varnish experts are still here. We’re one of half a dozen contemporary design projects revitalising the fine furniture tradition in the area.

HOME Does New Zealand design have a particular appeal in France, or does it depend on the quality of the individual designers?
Roderick Fry It is very much about the individual designers – and now that there are five of us that are doing well in Europe, finding an umbrella ‘New Zealand design style’ is becoming more difficult. The only link that’s left perhaps is that the work is unpretentious, and manages to be original and simple at the same time – and fortunately these are values which are both easily associated with what French people think of New Zealand, as well as being what they are now striving for in their own living environments.

HOME What are you working on yourself at the moment?
Roderick Fry Our creative season is actually very short – there are about four weeks of the year at the beginning of summer when our clients don’t want to hear from us that I can work on my own collection. Having said that I have my notebook with me all year round, and last summer we actually managed to knock out two new prototypes for tables, a desk and a chair which we’re still testing. Hopefully by the end of this summer we’ll have finished the prototypes for a set of kitchen accessories and a ‘computer-age’ wooden toy – as we prepare the launch of last summer’s designs.

Past Lives of Possessions

This evening, I secured our lounge area table with the white tablecloth my grandma weaved more than 100 years prior. It’s my most loved tablecloth and I just utilize it for exceptional events, for example, Passover, Thanksgiving, or Hanukah which we are celebrating with companions tonight. Each time I spread it over the table, I respect her craftsmanship; the mind boggling flower outline in blue, green, yellow and rose tints, the blue fringe and the bright geometric lines in each corner. I adore it since it’s delightful yet for the most part, I cherish it since I know my grandma made it and utilized it on her table. I smooth the fold lines, even out the drop on every side of the table and feel near her despite the fact that she has been away for more than 60 years.

I keep every one of my tablecloths in a pine cedar mid-section that serves as our end table in the family room. When you open it, the erotic odor of cedar encompasses you in a billow of aroma. I generally anticipate opening the pivoted cover and breathing in the primary exhaust that have been bolted inside since the last time I raised the top. The mid-section had a place with my better half’s family and was conveyed by moving truck alongside other rummage collectibles to our home in California more than forty years prior. His family was trusting these lovely pieces would be prized by the cutting edge pretty much as they had cherished them. With adoration, my better half restored the mid-section and it found a lasting home in our front room.

We couldn’t discover space for every one of the pieces that were conveyed that day yet a pine breakfront has managed the lounge area of each house we have lived in. The upper half, which is effortlessly expelled from the base for moving purposes, has a glass entryway with racks to show a significant number of our different fortunes. In the event that you take a gander at the topped top, you may see that a segment of the wood has been repaired, the casualty of a pet cockatiel who wanted to peck at the surface each time we neglected to watch him.
