Harbour Edge House: old meets new in Auckland
Harbour Edge House is one of the recent projects by Auckland based Fearon Hay Architects. The existing 400 sqm villa was built in 1910 and is one of Auckland’s early waterfront homes sited on the inner Waitemata Harbour. A rework and extension of the original structure responds to the requirements of modern living and creates a direct connection to the park-like landholding and coastal outlook. A new sky-lit kitchen is placed between the original structure and its new twin – the central space conceived as an internal courtyard between the new and the old. The new symmetry anchors the two wings and frames the harbor edge outlook.
