Transitional Villa

Architecture F+D=A was commissioned to transform a single storey, 90 sq metre, circa 1918 Onehunga Transitional Villa gracefully into the 21st Century.

Transitional because it had elements of both Villa and Bungalow architectural elements included.  The 100-year-old house, as typically the case , had ‘endured’ a series of extensions over time, of increasingly dubious quality.  The first task being to unpick these, before building out and up. The site at 350sqm was restricted but had been rezoned under the new Unitary plan, allowing for a more generous maximum height, and boundary setbacks.  The project was essentially master planned to a mature condition and then divided into stages, so that the build could be undertaken in a manageable way as finances allowed.  The project includes the absorption of a separate garage, the addition of a second storey for privacy of bedrooms and the crowning glory: a cupola to capitalize on a maritime view to Onehunga harbour!
