sustainable rusted cottages in new zealand win adnz award | Upload

Two little rusted cottages have won big at the New Zealand Architectural Design awards - confirming not only can smaller, sustainable homes mean a simpler life, but they can look amazing too.

This year's winner of the ADNZ Resene Architectural Design supreme award were two adjoined townhouses - just 74sq m each - on a 300sq m central city site in Christchurch. The prestigious awards were presented at a ceremony at Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa last night.
The rusted Madras St workingman's cottages were designed by Mitchell Coll of Coll Architecture and described as 'an exemplar for urban living', by the ADNZ judges. The properties also won the Residential Multi-Unit Dwelling Architectural Design Award and Residential Interiors Architectural Design Award.

'Back Country House' tucked away in the bush-clad hills of Puhoi, designed by David Maurice of LTD Architectural Design Studio, won the new home award for 150sq m-300sq m. The judges described the design as a 'clever use of volume inside a primary form'. The property features hidden bathtubs under the deck which overlooks a stunning bush setting. 
"All spaces are multi-functional and adaptable. Judicious detailing, demonstrating a high level of craft and conceptual awareness from all involved, allows the primary design proposition to be presented on strong terms," the judges said.
Allan McIntosh of Buildology won the Resene Colour in Design Award for '17 O'Neill', a restoration of a Ponsonby villa. The Resene judges were wowed by its beauty.

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
