Southern architecture celebrated with ADNZ regional awards

A temporary family holiday home in Queenstown that will one day be a garage has taken out two of the major awards in this year’s Otago/Southland ADNZ | Resene Architectural Design Awards.

Larchwood Heights House, designed by Michael Holmes of Holmes Architecture won the Residential Compact New Home up to 150m2 Architectural Design Award, and the Residential Interiors Architectural Design Award.

In announcing the awards, the judges said the project has taken a building that stands to become a garage in the future, and given it a dynamic interim role as a holiday retreat.
