Corinth residence

Corinth residence exterior

The existing house was constructed c.1963, designed by the celebrated modernist architect Vladimir Cacala. Published in an issue of the international journal Architectural Review, it is a fine example of modernist domestic architecture in Auckland. This house is in fairly original condition and retains many of the specific details that distinguish this house as worthy of respect. The present owners are well aware of the cultural and historic value of this house and are dedicated to retaining the integrity of the original design.

Our design intention has been to provide modern living necessities while disturbing the existing house as little as possible.

The new additions are to the east of the existing house minimally disturbing the existing concrete block wall and stepping back to retain the overall proportional integrity of the existing house.

The aim was to disturb the interior and exterior of the existing house as little as possible with the exception of the kitchen, which was moved to allow this larger space to be used as a versatile second living room/games room space that could double as an office studio.
