Meet Architect Lance Herbst at HOME’s exciting new event: In Conversation
Please join us for Allpress coffee and Amano pastries at our launch event, where you’ll meet Lance Herbst of Herbst Architects, whose Piha house won Home of the Year 2018.
The talk is brought to you by Altherm Window Systems and is part of the NZIA Festival of Architecture: we’d love to see you there.
Entry is free but numbers are limited, so be sure to register online here at Eventbrite.
Multi-award winning architects Lance and Nicola Herbst moved here from South Africa 16 years ago and rapidly built a name and practice around their thoughtful, beautifully crafted timber buildings. In doing so, they redefined what a New Zealand building might be. Both ephemeral and solid, their houses engage with landscape and weather in a way that seems obvious but is quite radical.
Herbst Architects are also three-time winners of our Home of the Year award, for three very different houses: a glassy dwelling in the trees at Piha, West Auckland; a robust, rusty retreat on a farm in Coromandel; and this year, an elegant, elevated home on a sun-challenged site, also at Piha.
