Complex Simplicity: HMOA’s award-winning house at Waikanae, Kapiti Coast

13 June 2017

Simplicity is deceptively complex at our Waikanae House which won a housing award at the recent NZIA Wellington Architecture Awards. The judging panel observed that the simple external forms of the structure contain a hidden complexity within. “Viewed on approach this house appears to be a simple composition of box forms. However, on entering and circulating through it, the composition reveals surprises, subtle complexities and a deft handling that responds to the site and the client needs.”

It’s a milestone year for Herriot Melhuish O'Neill Architects, formerly known as Herriot+Melhuish Architecture.

April also marks the company’s 20th birthday.

Inspired: HMOA’s Pete Lim on architect Todd Saunders

8 March 2017

You know those experiences that can jolt you out of your everyday: seeing an incredible piece of art, eating an exceptional meal, having a challenging conversation. Unexpected or unintended, these experiences linger in our mind afterwards and ever so slightly alter us. Pete, a recent addition to our Wellington studio, had one of these jolts recently at the NZIA Conference as he listened to Architect Todd Saunders.

The view from our holiday

27 January 2017

Somewhat ironically considering our line of work, we at HMOA prefer to spend our time outdoors rather than in. We bike, we run, we swim, we surf, and when we holiday it’s generally in the outdoors, in remote places with no architecture to speak of.

Architect Peddles People Power

25 November 2016

Nic Sewell, NZIA Registered Architect, is based in our Christchurch studio. Father of Hunter (pictured with Nic below) and with another baby on the way, Nic also finds time to help out at RAD Bikes where he assists with ‘recycling a dunger’; getting people moving on their bikes. Nic has been working with Herriot, Melhuish, O’Neill since 2011, when he and wife Jess, also an architect, returned from overseas and a period of WWOOF-ing. They were eager to make a difference for post-quake Christchurch. Nic is certainly doing that, we asked him more…

HMOA’s award-winning house at Peka Peka Beach

16 November 2016

A beach house unlike any other the almost-20 year old practice has designed before, to make your way onto this Peka Peka property you must first gently push your way past the native bush to get to the front door. The owners intentionally made it this way: you move, the native bush stays where it is.
