On the Market
Arts & Craft Style
Its always interesting to see homes a few years after construction is complete and observing how they have settled into their neighbourhood. This commission from 2010/11 was on a very steep Eastern Suburbs site, so working with the contours was a given. The upside was that breaking up the bulk of the home allowed it to politely nod toward other forms from the Kohimarama/Mission Bay built environment and seaside/arts & craft style dating from the early 20th century. This project shows a different aesthetic to other MRA designs - our style is the style that you choose for your new home.
The property has recently come back onto the market and is being presented by Mark Woods & Greg Gibson of Unlimited Potential. Take the tour of the home.
MRA & Louvre Tec: 20 years on
Louvre Tec is the NZ louvre/opening roof supplier who MRA has worked with extensively over the past 20 years. Recently one of our longstanding clients has added a Louvre Tec opening roof and window louvres to create an outdoor room at their MRA precast home, to replace and original timber pergola.The result was so stunning that Louvre Tec included it in their promotional video (watch from around 21 seconds).
Now our client is working with LouvreTec to include an outdoor room to their beach home. Great testimony to how these spaces add to the enjoyment of their MRA designed homes.

We're heading into a busy 2018 with a number of new projects ready to launch. It's great to have a variety of work ahead, working with new and existing clients, and especially working again with some valued colleagues in the industry. MRA values great relationships, from which come successful projects.
We are also very excited to be involved in a visionary project which will challenge and indulge us in developing many of our design principles and aspirations. We're working with a group of very clever and inspirational owners and consultants and look forward to telling you more as the project proceeds.
Nothing says Mid Century more than Lip Chairs (and we LOVE Mid Century). Comfy chairs for a quiet read, or a catch up chat. Lip chairs came in a variety of sizes, material coverings (we like the leather look), and colours! 2 of our chairs have matching foot stools. Our current tally is 5 - perfect for a circle of conversation
Things that Inspire Us...
Holidays... and January was an absolute stunner. On one of our treks we enjoyed studying the lakeside settlements of Omori and nearby Kuratau. One of the features we loved were the tracks which gave us glimpses of bachs and beach homes... or lakeside homes in this case.
