The Brake House in Titirangi, designed by the late Ron Sang in the 1970s for photographer Brian Brake, is undoubtedly a masterpiece - recognised as one of Aotearoa’s most influential examples of Mid-century modern architecture. Head to our link in bio to read the nzstuff article detailing the process behind its kitchen renovation. Undertaken in 2020 by cheshirearchitects, the re-vamp was centred around the question: How do you modernise such a space yet retain the spirit of the architect’s work? ⁠
