City Home is a 2011 project by Architex that was produced for a client positioned in Auckland, New Zealand.
It was made with an emphasis on transparency and the partnership in between indoor and exterior spaces.
City Home by Architex:
“This inner city property is developed for a single client as a retreat from a busy specialist life. The 400 m2 site was purchased with an authorized Resource Consent for a family members property – and so a revised short was developed to match into the authorized envelope.
The website is developed to its maximum both visually and physically, with a play on transparency and the flow of spaces from in to out. A assortment of outside rooms complement the bold pavilion forms. They are linked by a circulation gallery – which also creates an axial concentrate for the complete length of the internet site on entry.
The street pavilion has the prospective to become two guest rooms which share a bathroom and lounge area. The rear pavilion is private and contains an indulgent principal bedroom suite.
Sliding glass panels disappear into pockets to produce open balconies for living and sleeping, and concentrate on the central courtyard as their oasis. The street facade is specifically private with only a hint of the sophistication that lies beyond in the selection of colour and components.”
