    What’s your favourite piece of architecture in New Zealand and why?

  2. Paul King says:

    Hi Michelle!
    That is a pretty tough one to answer – there is a lot to choose from!
    One that stands out for me is the personal residence of Architect Ian Athfield in Wellington – not so much as architecture, but as urban design! His “house” is a series of individual forms cascading down the hillside that have grown over time in a very organic way. Inspired in no small part by the architecture and urban planning of Mediterranean hill towns, the intimate scale of each building, the visual consistency within the variation in forms, and the spaces between are what makes this place exceptional for me.
