First Gibbs House, Auckland

The first Gibbs House in Auckland's Parnell was a good example of the whimsical postmodern style in New Zealand. It was designed by architect David Mitchell and built in 1984. Employing contrasting geometric forms and materials, together with strong splashes of colour, the house was a bold and flashy contribution to the streetscape.
