Private Residence | Residential | Location: Takapuna, Auckland | Client: MDS
MSC was engaged by MDS for the structural engineering design of this two storey weatherboard house in St Heliers.
Another project designed by MDS Architects was the redevelopment of an existing two-storey weatherboard house, for which MSC did the structural engineering design. Working around the constraints of retaining the external walls of the existing house, the engineers executed engineering design to ensure the stability of the remaining structure while a basement was excavated to create a third level, and as all internal walls were removed.
The new design created a complete change to the layout of the house, with new load-bearing walls and beams, and new flooring throughout.
