Salmond Reed have been instrumental in the restoration and seismic upgrade of the building which was completed in 2022, not only coordinating the seismic upgrade and major repairs to the building, but designing and implementing the complete restoration of the interior of the the building. The building now meets the standard of >67% of the New Building Standard and has been re-presented with robust finishes and detailing that reflects the historic importance of this architectural gem of a building.

The brief for this Takapuna home alteration called for an updated external appearance including integration of a new double garage space into the existing structure and an updated porch and entry area.

The Seddon Memorial in Wellington, built 1908-1910, stands tall above the tree tops in honour of the Right Honourable Richard John Seddon (1845-1906), New Zealand’s longest serving Prime Minister. The design is a reinforced concrete column faced with Coromandel granite, mounted over a concrete crypt, complete with a life size bronze figure at the top, which represents the State in mourning for its dead.
