Wesley Residences

Built in 1883, the Wesley Church is situated in the heart of the busy seaside suburb of Petone, Lower Hutt.  The building fell into disuse in 2013 when it was declared an earthquake risk.  Our client purchased it a few years ago with hopes that the building could once again become a source of pride within the community. 

We worked closely with our client, who was inspired by restored colonial villas in the Auckland suburb of Ponsonby, to transform the building into Three, Two storey luxury residences, ensuring we salvaged as much original material as we could, into the design. 

We had to start again with the structure from the ground up as the only material able to be salvaged was the roof trusses and some ceiling panelling.  The exterior of the building has been completely restored to its original form and we worked closely with Heritage NZ around extending the building to accommodate the third apartment.

Each residence contains Three bedrooms, Two bathrooms, open plan living, kitchen dining and a single garage.
