Condon Scott Architects wins 2023 TIDA New Zealand Architect New Home of the Year

Congratulations to Condon Scott Architects, winner of the 2023 TIDA New Zealand Architect New Home of the Year

Watch a slideshow of this award-winning new home – plus architect Barry Condon talking about the design

Situated among the vineyards and rocky outcrops of Bendigo, and with views over Lake Dunstan and towards the Pisa ranges, this home is designed around two floating linear planes.

Consisting of the roof and floor, these planes extend beyond the boundaries of the walls to provide sheltered outdoor spaces.

The surrounding arid landscape and elevated site called for a home that allows for full enjoyment of the uninterrupted views in all seasons.

The glazed north-western aspect of the home provides breath- taking vistas, while these walls can slide open in the warm, dry summer months.

Inside, the kitchen is clad in dark stained timber, which continues down the interior boundary of the house. This creates an internal box which then forms the walls of the bedroom and second lounge.

A smooth, heated concrete floor creates a subtle base for the home, with a materiality that carries through to the  outdoor terraces.

Similarly, schist is used inside as well as out, adding grit and texture to the sleek architecture of  the building.

At the rear of the house, a schist wall with tall, narrow openings provides glimpses of the mountain side while also giving privacy to a second outdoor entertainment area.

The TIDA judges were impressed with the way this home sits in perfect harmony with its surroundings, with a form that conveys a sense of lightness and delicacy.
