Paradise in the city

Website

A touch of the tropics in Point Chevalier

The brief to the architect was simple – clean lines, a contemporary feel and a sense of luxury throughout. High on their priority list was a need to connect with their rich tropical garden, along with the ability to take advantage of the sea views and sunny aspect. By taking a collaborative approach with the architect, builder and suppliers, these homeowners have managed to create a beautiful oasis of calm, a mere stone’s throw away from central Auckland.

AT A GLANCE 

Windows and Doors

The majority of the joinery is specified from the FIRST® APL Metro Series. The large sliding doors in the lounge/dining area are from the FIRST®APL Architectural Series.

The wine cellar door is made from the APL Metro ThermalHEART Series with a retracting Raven seal at the sill.

The joinery colours are Duratec Metro Coal Dust Kinetic and the glass component of the front door is Jalapeno Red.

Urbo Hardware throughout the house offers clean shapes with a stylish combination of square and radiused edges.

Windowmakers specified Excel Low-E glass supplied by Metro Glasstech. Low E (or low emissivity) glass greatly enhances the insulation performance of the unit, improving heat loss reduction.
