Simon James Design

Home of the Year 2018

Nestled in a pohutukawa grove in Piha, the winner of Home of the Year 2018 is a thoughtful response to a tricky site. Sitting up on steel plinths with a sheltered internal courtyard, Herbst Architects have taken a standard footprint and cleverly twisted it in on itself. “To make a house as good as this takes enormous skill, a sympathetic client and the guts to know what not to do,” says HOME Editor Simon Farrell-Green. Herbst Architects are well known for their innovative designs – winning Home of the Year 2012 and Home of the Year 2016.
