A family’s sunny spirit defines a radiant extension with bold design choices.
When a family of four asked Auckland-based design practice Pac Studio for help with a home renovation, the architects knew early on that the project would be a joy. “They are wonderfully funny people with a great outlook on life and great, eclectic taste,” says Pac Studio Director Sarosh Mulla of the clients. “From the outset, they wanted the project to be fun and unusual.” The clients’ energy ultimately shaped the design direction, which began with the selection of a single color: yellow.
“Yellow is fun, yellow is warm, yellow is friendly,” explains Mulla, noting that the practice always tries to tailor each project to each client’s personality, as well as their pragmatic needs and budget. “There is something characteristically lovely about the color, and that’s a characteristic of the clients, too—a couple with two children who seem to be perpetually smiling. Their sunny disposition, adventurous spirit, and love of bold color was the basis for the design.”
