Onehunga Studio, Manukau Harbour Property

Photographs by Mark Smith

The building is located in Onehunga overlooking the Manukau Harbour and is the home and studio for an artist.

Two black timber blocks are separated by a rusty steel door. The blank facade, with its illusion of a two dimensional painting, masks a light filled angular interior space and verandah. The large room functions as a painting studio, a living area and a garage for the owner’s prized vintage motor cycle (the owner has a zen-like philosophy of minimal possessions).

A wall ten metres long and four metres high illuminated with southern light is the focus for painting and exhibiting. A simple kitchen, bathroom and storeroom complete the ground floor, while the bedroom is upstairs with a private terrace and dramatic view.

The forms and materials of the house reference New Zealand rural and vernacular architecture and have a synergy with the artist’s enthusiasm for New Zealand’s history. The house embodies the image of the artist as a “man alone”.

This family home is a contemporary country house and is located in grassy fields at the edge of a steep gully. The house and the landscape are designed as an integral whole, interacting with the surrounding landscape not in a deferential way but by framing it and by contrasting it.
