2015 ADNZ DESIGN AWARDS NATIONAL WINNER

JUDGES COMMENTS - 2015 ADNZ DESIGN AWARDS

Architectural Designers New Zealand CEO, Astrid Andersen, said Aaron Guerin had proved himself as a stand-out designer amongst compelling competition. "To have one individual designer win on three separate occasions for three very different designs is testament to Aaron Guerin's strong work ethic and his reputation in this competitive industry - well done Aaron."

Guerin’s tasteful and sympathetic treatment has turned a cold, draughty villa into an elegant period example – a delightful heirloom home.  The transformation is striking – this is clearly a standout design and Aaron wholeheartedly deserves this award,’’ Andersen said.  The judging panel was impressed that Guerin had maintained the integrity and consistency of the existing building, while greatly enhancing it as a home.  They also noted the alterations had reinvigorated the villa’s relationship to the site.  ‘‘Guerin’s tasteful and sympathetic treatment has turned a cold, draughty villa into an elegant period example.’’
