Three projects by Assembly Architects feature in Eco Home by Melinda Williams. Published by Penguin Random House, the book presents the modern home in a room by room format, focusing on structure, materials, insulation and systems, as well as wider eco issues. Wright house, Rammed Earth house and Sawtooth are featured for their various eco credentials and solutions.
The latest Houses magazine is on newstands, and features a studio interivew, plus profiles of 5 projects by Assembly Architects. Rammed Earth House, Sawtooth, Binoculars, Cox House and Wright House were selected to demonstrate the breadth of our work in this region.
This week, Architecture Now announced the shortlist for the New Zealand Institute of Architects national awards programme. Two Assembly projects have made the shortlist – Sawtooth in the housing category, and Binoculars in the multi-unit housing category.
The two projects are the only Queenstown Lakes projects on the Shortlist. The houses will be visited in person by the National Jury, led by Convenor Richard Goldie.
Binoculars recently won accolades at the Master builders awards for Bennie Builders.

2018 Southern Architecture Awards Winner
The Binoculars houses picked up a New Zealand Institute of Architects 2018 Southern Architecture Award at a ceremony held at Toitu, Otago Settlers Museum on Friday 8 June. The project won the only award in the multi-unit housing category.
Clients Paddy and Brian Stafford-Bush were thrilled with the award, and celebrated the award with their daughter Mia and son-in-law James Bennie of Bennie Builders, who built the award winning home.
The award citation is below:
Two houses with mirrored plans share a site, a wall and an entrance to make a complete whole. Two homes, twice the fun? The eye is not cheated here; the level of detailing elevates materials beyond their fundamental form, and everywhere you look there is something in which to take delight, including out front, where twin decks, seemingly unsupported, push bravely out towards the lake.
We are thrilled to see Binoculars published in the June issue of HOME NZ! Grab a copy!
