2001: Hebberd Renovation, Okiwi Bay,
Well known folks in Okiwi Bay Maurie and

Update: Photos of completed project below.
Completed Hebberd Renovation viewed from the
Design Notes: The
archetype Kiwi Bach, from a style standpoint, is traditionally and
unashamedly, an evolution of and a culmination of the needs and resources of its (often)
long history of occupants.

resulting buildings that endure, display an eclectic mix of materials each added piece
reflecting the period from which sourced and together accumulating to form a familiar
style, each with its own quirkiness.

'Before' View from the West, and from the
materials, components and colours have been untouched save for a little dressing up. New
additions have been considered, not in keeping with the existing, but following the common
bach practise of departing from such. Designed in sympathy with the nautical
environment while paying homage to the prevailing Kiwi Bach heritage found in
abundance in this Marlborough Sounds area.
