Ben Gilpin is an award winning architect. Last year he received recognition for two of his projects - an Otaki farm house designed for a retiring couple and a funeral home in Waikanae.

His design for the Otaki home scored him the residential new home between 150m2 and 300m2 architectural design award and a Resene colour in design award.

At first glance, this was a "simple, object-in-the-landscape type of project", the judges said.

However, on approach, a level of complexity was revealed through stepping levels and shifting wall planes articulated in strong hues and timber highlights, they said.

On the other hand, Gilpin's Waikanae funeral home received a commended in the commercial/industrial category.

Judges comments on the elegant division of spaces for commemoration and funeral preparation within a "well-enclosed envelope."

Creating cost effective and cutting edge design solutions for commercial landscaping, new housing or sustainability. Gil-plans architecture is the place to go on the Kapiti Coast.
