This project was inspired by the opportunity to strengthen and restore the beauty of a 135 year old former church in the historic suburb of Petone. The vision was to bring back the original character charm of this heritage building whilst also incorporating three state of the art modern apartments which blended seamlessly into the character of the original structure. Working entirely within the envelope of the original church, three spacious, two level character town houses have been created, each adorned with original features from the buildings past.
The interior spaces are a cohesive mix of modern, high end finishing’s that complement the remainder of the churches original features exhibiting sensitive transition between old and new.
Careful research and customised design were applied to ensure the building remained sympathetic to the original specification, whilst also delivering a high quality restoration wow factor.
