Smith Street, Auckland - 106 Architects | ArchiPro

Smith Street, Auckland

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.

Western Park is close by, so with the use of mirrors, the project was able to ‘steal’ a hint of a larger landscape area beyond and retain a level of privacy.

The material palette of marble, shades of white and black provide depth, balance and neutrality to a space, allowing details and hues to be celebrated. We love the use of gold in this project to provide that special experience and surprise.
