New Zealand High Commission Canberra, Australia
The house, although substantially renovated, retains its original character and is therefore in harmony with the existing early architecture of the Red Hill area.
A relatively modest example of its kind, the Residence marries very effectively the intimacy and comfort of a private home with the requirements of representational functions. Not just the home of the Head of Mission and his/her family, it is also a symbol of New Zealand, where important visitors are entertained. These have included Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1970, successive Australian Governors-General, Prime Ministers and Cabinet Ministers.
