Our clients home was significantly damaged during the Christchurch earthquakes, and needed an overall revitalisation to make this a great family home once more. From the initial kitchen table meeting I knew this would be a interesting transformation, and it did not disappoint. The original home had many character features which meant our design and detailing for the exterior of the significant addition needed to blend seamlessly with the fabric of the old. The street is filled with character homes which meant even the new garage received the same attention to detail. While the exterior blended with the past, the interior was pulled into the now. A modern open plan kitchen, dining, and living space great access and outlook to the north facing garden. While in the centre of the home a large light well brightens up this grand old home. A truly wonderful family home where the strengthens of AP Design shone through.
