Ticks the boxes

Great solutions can come from tough restrictions.

Great new build

  • Dual living areas
  • Catches the sun & views
  • New pool and entertaining
  • Theatre room
  • Plus large garaging
The steep site with big views of the harbour and Mt Maunganui to the north, had a tough, no exceptions height restriction.

Give us some “wow” factor and “grab that view.”

With a long list of requirements on the design brief, the solution had to be creative. The owners wanted big garaging for boat and 3 cars, dual living areas, home theatre, office, multiple bedrooms, bathrooms and a guest powder room.

This resulted in a floor area of 481 square metres with just 70mm to spare under the height restriction. All the living areas catch the sun and make the most of those views.

Multi-level Design

From the road side the house presents 3 levels and access to the top is via stairs or the lift, which was added as a future-proofing measure.

Outdoor Living

A pool and covered outdoor living space at the rear was designed to allow the view to be enjoyed through the kitchen / dining area.

Retreat Bliss

Having the master suite on the top level with the main and outdoor living areas, a self-contained ‘apartment’ feeling was created which suits the busy lifestyle of the owners.

Mix it up

The cladding combination of honed concrete block for texture , on the main body of the building and adornments clad in smooth Ali-Clad emphasize the geometric design.
