Pepper Architects has completed this Devonport sea side home, an modern property within a heritage zone on a tight urban plot.
Never the less with a hip roofed standing seam and weather board cladding, it has the appearance of a classic New Zealand villa.
The timber window joinery, concrete floors, and expressed steel structural elements provide a contemporary twist on the enduring villa typology and ensure this property will endure the test of time.
The interior of the home features a great indoor outdoor flow, thanks to large timber sliding doors, creating an airy and light space with views of the sea. This beautiful home has a fresh and modern style, with all the qualities of a classic New Zealand villa.
After gaining experience working in Auckland, Michael Pepper spent almost a decade working as an architect in Berlin and London before establishing pepper architects.
Pepper Architects focused on residential, hospitality, and bespoke commercial projects.
We provide clients with simple, sculptural and poetic solutions that are a reflection of the occupants, the place and the spirit of that place.
We prefer to use raw materials that invite the patina of age, giving character and warmth that is carried throughout the entire design process, from initial concept to the execution of the finest details.
Any project will have practical spatial requirements, cost, construction and delivery constraints.
We believe design solutions anchored in fully collaborative relationships between clients, consultants and the myriad of contractors will deliver the best outcome.
We listen to our clients, we work collaboratively with good people to deliver great outcomes we are all proud of.
We would be happy to discuss any new project opportunities and welcome you to make contact.
