Thorndon Mews

Pitarua Street
Thorndon, Wellington
In 2003 Peter Beaven won an Enduring Architecture Award from the New Zealand Institute of Architects. Referring to this 1975 Habitat Housing project the citation says: 'Thorndon Mews extended the concept of low rise high density housing with an intricate arrangement of small dwellings, up a steep site, skilfully interwoven with alleyways, stairs and courtyards, with each unit maintaining a discrete relationship to the whole.'

This was Wellington's first mews style medium density development.
