You’ve seen the houses in the magazine — now visit them in person.  Join HOME New Zealand in Auckland and Wellington at HOME Tour 2019. With special thanks to Fisher & Paykel

After a wonderful start in Auckland last year, HOME Tour returns in an expanded format – starting in Wellington this September with thanks to our friends at Fisher & Paykel.

The tour features some of our favourite houses – all of which have featured in the magazine in recent years – along with their architects, who will be on hand to talk about their designs.

HOME Tour opens the doors to houses that respond to site and brief, rather than trend or artifice. They’re unique, individual homes, tailored to their clients’ needs – we look forward to seeing you there.

Details

HOME Tour is a self-drive tour of architecturally designed homes. It starts at 9.30am and finishes at 3pm. Attendees are split into groups, so please let us know if you are booking with friends.

Project ‘Pyramid Scheme’

Practice Patchwork Architecture

Location Mt Cook

Our Best Small Home in Home of the Year 2017 is still the last word in good planning. Built on a tiny site, it contains three bedrooms and a study, and living spaces that connect to a sheltered courtyard. It’s smart living in a clever little house.


Project ‘10×10’

Practice Patchwork Architecture

Location Kilbirnie

HOME August/September 2019’s cover home makes the most of a small, steep site with almost no buildable flat land. Anchored by a concrete core, the home floats above a busy road and has spectacular views from floor-to-ceiling windows. A whimsical roof deck completes the picture.


Project ‘Skybox’

Practice Melling Morse

Location Te Aro

Tall and skinny, elevated above an existing building in central Wellington, the late Gerald Melling designed ‘Skybox’ for himself in the early 2000s. With clever, compact planning over three levels and a warm, plywood-lined interior, there’s a constant play between the urban and the domestic.


Project ‘Salmont Place’

Practice Parsonson Architects

Location Kelburn

Across a steep site between two roads, Gerald Parsonson has created two urbane apartments for a couple in retirement – one to live in, and one to rent. Spectacular city views and passive-house design ensure the best of everything.
