Smith Street Villa – Auckland
2014 - 2016 Freeman's Bay, Auckland, New Zealand
106 Architects were asked to undertake design work for the initial stage of a villa alteration project in Freeman’s Bay.
Phase One of a long-term masterplan was a new ensuite and wardrobe, and refurbishment of the existing bathroom. The design was implemented to provide a new taste of contemporary that would contrast – and respect – the classic New Zealand villa.
The ensuite interior provokes a ‘new world’ feel, with an evocative moody, raw elegance, and a touch of sophistication and luxury. Natural light is key to enable a personal retreat for the ritual of bathing.
