    Housing - Additions & Alterations



Our client was a passionate graphic designer and CEO of a local design and marketing consultancy with a keen interest in interior design for his new home.

Our architectural response to his brief was to maximise the property’s envelope on a restrained build budget to include 3 bedrooms, 2 modern bathrooms and an expansive open living space, with modular kitchen.
Located in dense suburban Grey Lynn, a quiet & private oasis was designed for the rear of the site with a raised lawn flowing seamlessly from the house to a crisply detailed swimming pool.

Beautifully furnished with tasteful artwork, this home was an exercise in restraint and simple, refined detailing providing a canvas for modern living.

"Working with Lloyd Hartley was a pleasure, their intentions were always aligned to mine, and their ability to adapt and respond to the evolving vision I had as a client made it a very enjoyable process. Meeting and discussing design choices, material ideas, and working through all the home’s features makes me want to do it all again, inside the bright line of course."
