Their sensitive renovation of a heritage-listed Auckland apartment brings light and space without sacrificing any of its charms. The project was one very close to Director Ben Lloyd; it’s is his home where he lives with fiancee Phoebe Gibbons. After a frustrating search, they came across the special flat located in the Hampton Court building, designed by Sinclair O’Conner in the 1930’s. Their careful and delicate restoration of the apartment looks as though nothing has changed, though they barely left a wall untouched. Where once there was a cluster of small rooms, there are spaces that seem to expand past their small footprint. Which makes a little apartment feel positively generous indeed.
