We're excited that Your Home and Garden magazine has published a 5 page story on the Akiraho St apartment renovation, which came out in the shops today.
We've just begun work to restore, seismically upgrade and extend an old warehouse building in Eden Terrace. Interestingly, it was originally built in the early 1920's for 'J.W. Andrew Esq' as a Ford car showroom, a company still operating in Auckland as John Andrew Ford. The building now houses a creative team of architecturally trained model makers and design fabricators who build exquisite models and exhibition displays.
One of the best parts about working on historical buildings is looking through the old drawings. Here are some examples of drawings for this building ranging from the 1920's to the late 1970's.
Here are a couple of behind the scenes photos from a recent shoot of the Akiraho Apartment which will be featuring in Your Home and Garden magazine in the coming months
