On Location

Over the years we have had the privileged opportunity to meet passionate design collectors throughout New Zealand. These friends have given us the opportunity to have access and insights into many coveted mid century homes from leading Architects of the day.

This elegant linear masterpiece sits at the top of a steep site which allows spectacular views over the city. The house was built in 1966 by gifted architect Ken Albert for a University lecturer and his family.  

Unlike the houses around it, McClew house features a bold pavilion-style form with expansive floor to ceiling glass, open plan living and cantilevered balconies. It’s a daring statement of design and an important example of New Zealand’s mid-century architectural legacy.
