COASTAL HOME

COASTAL HOME

This great residential house on Waiheke Island, featured in TRENDS, is a cluster of elegant pavilions that are separated by beautiful water features and sheltered outdoor areas. The pavilions which meander across the site are linked by a gallery and as you move through the house the water features and different distant views are revealed.

The layers of soaring roofs imitate the topography and open up to let light penetrate deep into the pavilions. The roofs are suspended on glass walls that are moved aside allowing the indoor to become outdoors.

FAMILY HOME

FAMILY HOME

This great home has more than enough room for its family with a central kitchen that separates the informal and formal areas to suit family activities. Both the Living and Family Rooms are double height rooms giving a feeling of spaciousness.

Rooms in the upper levels have windows that can be opened up to the Living and Family Rooms voids. The internally accessed garage and efficient floor plan allow convenient living in this St Heliers home that captures all day sun.

TOWN HOUSE

TOWN HOUSE

The clients wanted a three bedroom, contemporary, open plan house. The brief was to employ contrasting materials incorporating mono pitch roofs with large overhanging eaves and offset walls to create complexity. An existing house on the site was to be retained, leaving an area 230 square metres for the new house in which several mature trees were located.

The design concept for the site was to form three volumes. Two for internal spaces, offset to create the third volume of external space. A large roof is supported by an inclined column producing a transition between the internal and external spaces. The mature trees sit strikingly against the charcoal coloured linear-board backdrop of the exterior walls while the zincalume clad eaves blend into the blue sky.

At the ground level living spaces connect seamlessly and a light filled void is transcended to the generous sleeping areas hovering above. Movement from inside to outside occurs at every opportunity while a crisp interior of polished concrete and stainless steel blend softy with natural timber and warm white ensuring a relaxing atmosphere.

Although the client insisted on floor heating, at last report they haven’t used it because “the house is so warm”.

This house which is located in Kohimarama has been cited as a "Best House Design".
