The Tapper House, as it is known, was designed by architect Vladimir Cacala in 1957 and completed in 1960 in Auckland New Zealand. It has now come onto the market. If you follow Plastolux you know I am rather picky when it comes to posting mid century architecture. This house grabbed my attention right away. The patina found on the interior materials are perfect. The wood walls and ceilings are warm and welcoming juxtaposed with the gray stone on the walls. Everything feels right with the house. Sometimes I can’t explain why a home resonates with me but it just does. The current owns have done an excellent job with this historic home.
