Nestled into the Rolling Green Pastures of Karaka, this modern black barn home was designed with Family at its centre. 

For Mum it's the idyllic rural lifestyle she's been dreaming of with an organised place for everything and space for everyone. For Dad, the black-on-black exterior with its lines & textures encompasses that classic kiwi cool factor with an entertainer's kitchen to show off just how cool this pad is! For Daughter, a pool and decking provide plenty of opportunities for social time from the comfort of home. And for Brother, the kids retreat equals gaming heaven.

This bespoke design was created to capture it all, including the stunning views.

About the

Our story started long before our time when life was a little simpler but dreams were just as big. You see, Nick’s Great, Great Grandfather was a carpenter in a bustling European town, with centuries of inspirational architecture and craftsmanship all around him.

With a passion for what he could do with his hands, he packed his young family up with hope in his heart and set sail for their chance to share in the ‘American Dream’. Settling just outside of Detroit Michigan, he used his skills to help shape this city into the icon it became in its heyday. Not in any one grand gesture, but in many small skilled tokens of his workmanship.

His love for his craft inspired 4 generations of builders who share that same passion. A Passion which travelled across continents too, from Serbia to the US and then 14 years ago, to New Zealand, Godzone, the place I keep coming back to, regardless of how far and wide I’ve travelled. You see for us, these stories carry our legacies.

For Nick and I, it’s building on that love for craftsmanship and creating spaces where you, can carry on the legacies of your family. We’re building beautiful homes where you can build your own beautiful future.
