Row apartment was designed to fit into an existing warehouse in
Christchurch, New Zealand. The client was an artist and art collector
from New York, who was interested in developing the entire building,
but first he needed a penthouse apartment to live in.
I have designed
the apartment to have an open-plan style of living. The bathing
space, which is the only room separated by walls and a door, is
basically a separate entity within the greater apartment, and divides
the rest of the apartment into three main spaces:
space - containing the kitchen, dining area, conversation area and
The sleeping space - the roof of the bathing space. It is accessed
by stairs and overlooks the whole apartment.
The work space
- a studio for the client.

a QuickTime Virtual Reality scene. To navigate through the scenes,
you can either use the arrow keys or hold down the left mouse button.
To zoom in press 'Shift' and to zoom out press 'Ctrl'. To move forward
to another part of the scene, drag the mouse pointer until it turns
into an arrow and press the left mouse button.

modelled using ArchiCAD 6.0
