L. G. West, Plans for a Residence at Hokowhitu

These architectural plans depict a two-storey house, featuring seven bedrooms. It was designed by L. G. West for Jacob Nannestead. The house was built around 1892. After it was sold to to Jack Strang in 1903 the house was extensively enlarged, both by him and by the New Zealand Government during the time it was leased to them for use as Government House (1908-1910). In 1921 the house was sold to William Caccia Birch. It is now known as Caccia Birch House in his honour. The Danish-born architect Ludolph Georg West (1846-1919) established an architectural practice in Palmerston North in about 1880. In 1912 he formed a partnership with is son, Ernest Vilhem West, who continued the business after his father's death.
