By definition, bungalows are single- storey dwellings. They are easily distinguished from villas by their roofs, which have lower pitch and are generally gabled. Art deco buildings had a distinctive form, characterised by a flat roof, parapet walls, and curved walls or rounded corners. The main point of difference between state and private housing built in the 1940 to 1960s was orientation on site. Private housing tended to be orientated towards the street, regardless of sun and views, whereas state houses were often located and orientated to take advantage of sun and views. The 1970s speculative (spec) houses were typically small and plain, rectangular or L-shaped in plan, and built from lower- cost materials. At the same time, houses in the more affluent areas were increasing in size. Handy help: The website specialising in reno- vations is a valuable source of information. Get the technical know-how on refurbishing houses from different eras with the website renovate.org.nz. This website is the first in New Zealand to provide everything you need to know about renovating villas, bungalows, art deco, 1940 to 1960s and 1970s homes. The wesite is free to access. It was built by BRANZ, the building research specialists, with help from architects, designers and builders around the country who are experts in period homes. Each section provides an insight into the style of house with information ranging from the history and layout of the houses, through to commonly experienced problems, remedies and modifications. In addition, learn about project planning your renovation, and compliance and regulation considerations. The website is complemented by a Renovate series of publications on houses from different eras which can be bought from the website. The original development of the Renovate website was funded by BRANZ from the Building Research Levy.
