Judges commented, “Breaking away from the surrounding traditional Epuni Street villas, this house creates a dramatic contrast in the streetscape. Raw materials are expressed as finished surfaces throughout. The clients’ unique artefacts are thoughtfully integrated into the building fabric, offering richness in colour and texture to dramatic effect.”

This project was built by Steve Oliver.

“Working with John is like collaborating with your best friend who knows everything about you, what you like and what you don’t. He will nudge you in the right direction if you seem to be getting too far away from exquisite taste. Your best friend loves to spend time with you, is kind, and always wants the best outcome for you, right? That’s John.”
