Borrmeister Architects wins 2023 TIDA New Zealand Renovation of the Year

Congratulations to Borrmeister Architects, winner of the TIDA New Zealand Renovation of the Year, with a contemporary addition to a heritage villa

Watch architect Wulf Borrmeister talk about the award-winning renovation and addition

This 1899 heritage listed villa had undergone previous alterations with a mid-2000s addition.

Its latest renovation called for minor internal alterations and refurbishment to the existing structure and a completely new addition at the back, suitable for a  growing young family.

A key vision for the addition and alterations was to increase the connection of the house to its surrounding gardens and northern outdoor living area.

Raw materials used in the garden room and a soaring extension of timber and concrete structures enhance the garden connection.

Timber fins, battens, a floating pergola, and picture windows frame garden views, blurring the boundaries between inside and out, and bringing nature inside.

The existing living area lightwell has been enhanced by the addition of rich dark timbers to the ceiling – a change  from the original white.

Plus a new light well in the garden room highlights the raw texture of the board-faced concrete wall below.

The TIDA judges were impressed with the preservation work done to the existing villa, and with how the new contemporary addition to the rear provides a warm and inviting family living space with easy access to the outdoors.
