Building an architectural home is always a pleasurable challenge. For many clients, this is their dream home realised. For the architect it’s an opportunity to showcase their design flair. For the AJ Scott team, it’s a chance to display their expertise, and win building excellence awards.

Rochdale Street

A narrow site, ground remediation work, negative detailing and secret doors were all taken in stride by the AJ Scott team. The build required a high level of accuracy, case in point; a wall of uniform timber veneer panelling, with secret handle-less soft-closing doors that open to bedrooms and look just as good on each side of the door.

Designed by O’Neill architects this beautiful Fendalton home wraps itself around a private, sun-soaked internal courtyard. Texturally the home is made up of vertical cedar cladding stained black, Timaru blue stone and glass.

The building received a Registered Master Builders House of the Year Gold Reserve Award and Gold Award.
