BOP Architectural Award Winners

Jonathan McAlpine was a big winner on the night, taking away two regional awards and one commended award. He won a Residential New Home between 150m2 and 300m2 Architectural Design Award for a home titled ‘Pure Forms’, a Residential Interiors Architectural Design Award for a project called ‘Textural Connections’ and was recognised with a commended award for another design called ‘Timeless Tradition’.

 

‘Pure Forms’ is a stunning family home nestled in the heart of Mount Maunganui. The brief given to Jonathan was threefold. The clients wanted to create a home that functioned well for their young family’s needs and that had the feel of a traditional beach bach. It also had to utilise its unconventional site to its full potential, allowing for a boat park. The brief needed to be delivered under a strict construction budget.

Jonathan went for a simple design that used pure forms and a traditional aesthetic with strong rooflines. To accommodate the brief, they extended the footprint into the roof space. This maximised the floor area and limited construction costs. In keeping with the traditional architecture and Mount Maunganui bach theme, stained cedar plywood and batten was selected.

 

The judges say the substantial home carries its size well.

 

“The plan and the form have been carefully crafted to create a sequence of spaces, a combination of calm, dramatic, expansive, and intimate, all as a backdrop for family life.”

Mt Maunganui designers talent recognised at Bay Awards

 

Article from Bay of Plenty Times 10/7/2017

 

Talented Mount Maunganui designer Jonathan McAlpine of Thorne Group Architecture won a bevy of awards when he pitted his skills against his peers.  He was a standout at the 2017 Resene Architectural Design Awards Bay of Plenty, held in Hamilton on Friday.

 

The awards recognised outstanding, creative and innovative residential, commercial, alterations and multi-use projects designed by members throughout New Zealand, said spokeswoman Fiona McLeod.

 

Mr McAlpine's top award for the night was the Residential Interiors Architectural Design Award for a Tauriko home.The Tauriko home's winning interior design was inspired by natural elements that were "current and timeless".

 

The design was described as having interiors that were a combination of organic materials and a modern interpretation of traditional design.  Judges described the home as "tactile" and noted the subtly lit cedar spine as "the main ordering device in a simple linear plan which is offset by neutral tones throughout the remainder of the house".

 

ADNZ chief executive Astrid Andersen congratulated the winners, saying Bay of Plenty members had once again produced examples of striking and impressive design."Jonathan has received a fitting acknowledgment of his skills, talent and commitment to his craft.

 

"This year the standard and quality of design has been raised again and we are very proud of our members who contribute at this high level in the architecture and design industry," she said.
