A Cook House banner

Darfield - Canterbury, 2013.

A modern take on the Native North American "Cook House", this crafted gable-formed structure was designed in conjunction with the overall landscape design by Henry Blakely Landscapes. Views to the Southern Alps and the surrounding garden are maximised with the use of glass for 70 per cent of the walls. Frameless glass sliders stack internally creating an open pavilion in the summer months and permit enough air flow when closed in the winter months for the wood-fired BBQ to work its magic!

Nic Curragh

Born and raised in Christchurch, Nic returned from Vancouver, Canada in 2010 and set up Objects Ltd after having spent 14 years as a special effects designer & builder within the motion picture industry. 

Classically trained as a draughtsman through Christchurch Polytechnic and Sheppard & Rout Architects, Nic then furthered his education at Auckland University prior to a "one year" sabbatical that resulted in his lengthy Vancouver vocation.

With an adept knowledge of materials, technique and manufacture that result in detail-rich designs, Nic now applies this skill to architecture: his first passion.
