A curved tunnel provides an unexpected connection in a renovated, mid-century home

When a well-traveled couple tapped Australian design practice Nic Owen Architects to renovate and expand their modest 1940s home in Hampton, the architecture firm channeled the clients’ love of adventure into a design that boasts elements of mystery and surprise.

Designed in 1959 by Sir Miles Warren, New Zealand’s leading architect, the Ballantyne House in Christchurch is representative of the Christchurch School of architecture of the 1950s, which borrowed influences from Brutalism along with Danish and Japanese design.
