DCHGlobal Wins 2017 International Property Awards – Architecture Single Residence New Zealand for Whale Bay

Date: May 31, 2017
Award: Architecture Single Residence New Zealand
Award By: International Property Awards
Architect: David Hovey, Jr., AIA

Located in Kerikeri, New Zealand, this private residence by David Hovey, Jr., AIA is constructed with pre-fabricated beams, columns, connectors and plates that are assembled into components in the shop and sequentially transported to the jobsite for erection. Overlooking the scenic Whale Bay, nature plays a crucial role in the building both in materials and views: the building envelope is comprised completely of Low-E UV-protected laminated glass with a heat-reflective coating. The glass acts as a canvas for nature’s reflections of both color and texture.
