Olsen ...Te Pua Road, Kaikohe. This house had become a waren with many ad hoc extensions added over the years on more than two levels.
All except the original house were demolished to make way for a new living room with internal access to a double garage on a lower level. The roof
of the garage became a large deck accesssed from off the living room.. perfect for the miday to late afternoon sun.
Kidd ... Onekura Road, Kerikeri. This house was a 1940 house relocated onto the site frorm Auckland. It had a small living room with no covered
outdoor living area. I designed an extension to the living room with portico roof over an extension to the deck. The portico roof is very useful...
it is high enough to allow light to reach in under and to not darken the living room ... it is large enough to fit a good sized table under and to keep
dry in all but very rainy gales.
