Massina House

17-1 Massina House

A project comprising radical internal alterations and additions to an existing church hall to create a stunning new residence, this project went on to win a number of HIA commendations for the highest achievement in the residential building industry in the 2012 HIA awards programme.  In particular the project includes a remarkable suspended, glass-walled master bedroom that looks out across the spaces below it, as well as the skilful insertion of a new ensuite bathroom, kitchen and living area, all concealed behind the existing envelope of the church hall facade, but spilling out via a new timber deck to the hidden garden behind.
