With a beautiful outlook towards a stream in suburban Christchurch, this home enjoys a natural material palette of concrete, copper and timber.
Lineal concrete forms are staggered along the site giving occupants access to sun throughout the day, held together by the sculptural roof. The copper raises from the ground at the entry in the West stretching up over the living spaces to encapsulate the first floor sleeping quarters. The copper form is extruded front to back, exposing an undercroft of rich timber.
