When I was in Wellington 10 days ago I was invited by Designmade to speak to local interior designers and industry specialists about the pro’s of having an online presence and demystifying social media. Before my presentation I got to join the rest of the audience to hear about a verrrrryyy awesome and inspiring project taken on by the 3 young architects of Patch Work Architecture.
Ben Mitchell-Anyon, Sally Ogle and Tim Gittos actually quit their jobs with two respected Wellington based architecture firms, to buy a steep hillside section in Wanganui and bring to life an affordable home that they had designed. By bringing to life…I mean actually build it. By themselves. The story was really quite incredible with massive learning curves, super savvy design and cost cutting and a final outcome of being judged a finalist in the HOME New Zealand Magazine – Home of the Year 2013. I highly recommend taking some time to look through the blog they maintained during the build and jump on board their new Facebook page to watch their body of work develop.All photography for Paul McCredie for HOME Magazine.
