Winner of Residential Home 2019 category-NZ Institute of Architects in the Wellington architecture awards.

In May 2019, Wellington-based architect Andrew Sexton won two house awards presented by the NZ Institute of Architects in their 2019 Wellington architecture awards. One was for his parent’s house in the Cashmere Oaks subdivision on the northern edge of Masterton.

Both homes were built by his brother, Masterton builder Richard Sexton, who won a swag of Master Builder awards for his parents’ home, including the Supreme Award and Craftsman awards.

The Cashmere Oaks house has stunning views of the Tararua Ranges–something the design makes full use of.“Every room we use has a view,” John says.

Judges comments: “The detailing of the stone around the fireplace, and in other areas, illustrates the high level of care and attention expended on the project.”
