Quake Hit Villa in Christchurch is Replaced by a Home that Adapts and Evolves
When a home is lost to a natural disaster, its residents lose a whole lot more than just property. It is memories of an entire life that are wiped out and starting out afresh can be a challenging affair in more ways than one. The House with Villa Silhouette in Christchurch, New Zealand is a structure that replaced an old villa that stood on the same lot before an earthquake hit the region. The homeowners wanted a residence that incorporated a part of their old villa, was far less rigid and a lot more open in design. Irving Smith Architects accomplished precisely that with the new, modern structure that offers a design that is evolutionary and practical!
