Don Nelson Award Winning Designs For New Homes & Renovations

1. SUPREME AWARD MASTER BUILDERS: NZ HOUSE OF THE YEAR

Awards 1Winning the Supreme Award in the Master Builder House of the Year competition was a reflection of the quality of the Don Nelson design and the depth of the detailing specified.

Designed by Don Nelson Architecture, the luxury home shown here was called by the judges . . . a home of exceptional craftsmanship with astonishing attention to detail.  They praised it as an outstanding example of all aspects of construction and design. The laminated totara timber handrails and facings, curved stairway and waved walls give this home a timeless and subtle blend of contemporary and classic style.

A well-deserved winner of the New Zealand Master Builders National Supreme Award.

2. ADNZ DESIGN AWARD: FOR BEST NZ LARGE-SCALE RESIDENTIAL ALTERATIONS & ADDITIONS

In 2003 Don Nelson Architecture won the prestigious ADNZ Design Award for Large-Scale Residential Alterations and Additions for the complete renovation and re-build of a vintage 1940’s house. Again, an outstanding design project which transformed a small very out-of-date property into a substantial landmark home of distinction. The judges were impressed with the seamless blending of the new building with the refurbished existing, saying the creative design produced by Don Nelson provided a thoughtful and sympathetic glimpse of the era’s architecture.

Don was commissioned to produce a plan that included significantly enlarging the house and changing its internal layout. The renovation tripled the size of the house and dramatically changed the appearance. While the curved walls, pillars, chimneys, balconies supported on columns and intricate plasterwork added a sense of grandeur often found in large homes of this era, a subtle Edwardian influence added romanticism. The dining room was designed as the nucleus of the house with double-height ceiling and internal Juliet balcony within a fully glazed turret which overlooks the extensive landscaping. Several expansive living spaces were provided with indoor-outdoor flow to the walled pool area and luxurious en-suite bathrooms designed for all six upstairs bedrooms.
