Built in the 1970s, this cedar-clad home with its multi-gabled roof was typical of an era when split-level design was the height of architectural acuity. Undoubtedly, the layout possessed a certain labyrinthian appeal, but a warren of rooms was not conducive to easy family living.Save this picture!© Emma-Jane HetheringtonRecommended ProductsWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40WindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWindowsStudcoSteel Window Reveal – EzyRevealRetaining the charm of the building along with some quality materials was integral to this extensive two-stage alteration. The aim was to make the spaces bigger, to tidy up the material palette and, externally, to re-present the overall mass and street appeal of the property.Save this picture!© Emma-Jane HetheringtonIn Stage One, the interiors were re-defined, and a pavilion that flows out from the central core beneath a new fold of the roof was added. This houses a kitchen, living area and, behind a three-quarter height room divider, a cosy dining nook – a nod to that 70s style. Sarked ceilings and tongue-and-groove walls emulate the linearity and warmth of those in the original home, while built-in furniture such as cabinetry, shelving units and a breakfast pantry that juts through the external wall, are designed as separate elements in the space.  Save this picture!First Floor PlanDisguising the gables was an important part of the Stage Two process, a delicate balancing act between modernising the look, yet melding in with the colonial villas of the neighbourhood. A new two-storey box intersects with the main form of the home; it contains a bedroom and en suite, with a garage below. This cube is defined architecturally by fine cedar battening, an element that is repeated to hide the main gable over the upper storey of the dwelling. A playful material fluidity is seen in the garden fence which wraps its way behind the garage of the box to reappear as cladding on the ground level of the original home. Project gallerySee allShow lessInterview with Jean-Louis Cohen, Curator of the French Pavilion at the 2014 Venice B…InterviewsCopenhagen Hospital Draws Competition Entries from Snøhetta, Mecanoo, & MoreArchitecture News Share 2013 Area:  404 m² Area:  404 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeDorrington Atcheson ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAucklandHousesNew ZealandPublished on July 02, 2014Cite: “Marine Parade / Dorrington Atcheson Architect” 02 Jul 2014.
