We are so excited to share the design reveal of our Mackit Habitat home with you. Tall, dark, and angular at the front, the rear softens into a lower slung rectangle that fans out as it reaches the rear of the section.
The front of the building is intended to appear as a silhouette, clad in dark plaster render that blends effortlessly into the roof, as though they are sculpted out of the same material. The front roofline of the house folds up and over the open carport and single internal access garage, before peaking up to the second storey master suite. Keeping this as one continuous line is a key design feature, interrupted only by the cutout entrance. The beautiful trees we retained at the front of the section, will cleverly camouflage the second storey, giving the impression that the home is nestled behind the trees.
Upon entering the house, the eye will be lead down the corridor, refracted by a timber feature wall, and through to the wider open plan space. The upstairs will be accessed from the main corridor via open tread stairs seemingly suspended from timber slats. This will lead up to a spacious master oasis with ensuite and walk in wardrobe. A built in window seat under the west facing window will be the perfect spot to curl up with a book or simply enjoy the view. Being at the front of the section, means that the west facing views from the upstairs will focus on the Tararua Ranges in the distance, rather than overlooking neighbouring properties.
