In a recent interview published online by Scoop, I share my views as University of Canterbury College of Engineering’s Architect in Residence on the housing crisis in New Zealand.
Modelling some concept ideas for a pair of townhouses on a narrow site in Ruskin Street, Christchurch. Concrete, timber, steel. Indented courtyards, covered patios; a variety of approaches to fenestration and screens. Togetherness and individualism, shared and not shared, combined.
new work studio / tim nees architects moved into the iconic Warren & Mahoney building a few weeks ago, and we’re starting to feel settled.
We occupy a narrow half-gabled space near the top of the building overlooking the courtyard and pool, a space rich in natural colours and textures, shadow and light, and history.
Sharing the building with other architects and landscape architects adds to the studio atmosphere, and provides a focused and inspiring place to work.
