Situated on a small lifestyle block, north west of Auckland, lies this 3 bedroom cedar clad family home. The simple rectangular building is positioned to make the most of the stunning rural and bush views to the east from all rooms, while capturing and storing as much of the sun in the exposed concrete slab. Separated by the central garage the living and bedroom wings are designed for the occupants to get outdoors while the layout allows for easy and practical movement though the home. Perfect for rural living.

There is something satisfying about a thing that is well made and well designed. We set out in 2008 looking to raise the standard of design in our local built environment. Since then we have worked in some incredible locations to create buildings that reflect the character of the people who live in them and place in which they live. We design with sensitivity to the physical and cultural context of the site, using natural materials and finishes where possible with a focus on robust and elegant detailing. We have a tight knit team of skilled architectural designers and technicians to handle new residential and commercial projects, alterations and additions of any complexity.
