Situated overlooking the Gulf Harbour Marina, with views looking back to Rangitoto this idyllic site was perfect for the family of four. The brief was to accommodate the family’s desire of having an open plan living with separate wings for the adults and children.
This single level house has been designed with angles differentiating the heights of the ceiling throughout the house. In the living area the roof angle creates a high ceiling height that allows for large windows to open up the living space and to look out to the marina below, the open plan living area extends outside as a deck runs the length of the house.
Connecting off the living space is the adult's wing, consisting of a master bedroom, en suite, walk-in wardrobe, powder room, study and a games room. Linking off the living area is a separate wing for the children, containing three bedrooms and a bathroom. Between the two wings lies a courtyard for private/ sheltered entertaining.
The exterior angular forms create shadow lines and a modern aesthetic shaped to address the marina view and make the most of the sun angles for entertaining on the deck or in the central courtyard.
We believe that our fresh approach to design, and our ability to remain pragmatic during all aspects of a project differentiates us from our competitors. This synergy makes us an attractive proposition to build not only great buildings, but also great relationships with our clients and our industry partners.
We foster autonomy within our practice, while we work in a team environment we encourage and empower individuals within the team. Everyone within our team has something to contribute, providing a culture that values openness and critical thinking.
This ensures that we have a more innovative and robust design process.
With the right team, not only is anything possible, but more importantly, the journey from inception to execution is hugely enjoyable.
