Malcolm Walker is an Auckland based architectural practice with over 30 years experience in the industry. They have a diverse portfolio of residential and commercial work – however, they have a particular focus on residential renovations. With a reputation for innovative and practical designs, they relish the chance to be challenged with their projects.
Their renovation of this villa is an example of their ability to tackle an architectural challenge. “The roof had been leaking down inside the walls for years. There were rats in the ceiling, the piles were rotten and the whole place was damp and mouldy. It was basically a sick building.” said the owners.
Walker’s response to the darkness in the home is inspiring. Skating light along ceilings and down the rough-formed concrete – the windows are all varied and spread throughout the house, so the light changes utterly during the day.
