With a pristine site overlooked by mature oak trees, the clients wanted a home that made use of the great views but also created private outdoor space. The result of the collaborative design process was a bespoke design which showcased a U-shaped layout that offered a sheltered courtyard and glazed gable wings.
This design creates a protected entrance area to the centre of the house leading to an open living/ kitchen space with a connected dining room with views to the front garden and beautiful oak trees. A separated family den area was also included. The design allows for the best views of the natural landscape from all main rooms, with service rooms being positioned to the rear of the dwelling.
The design is NZEB compliant utilising a PV and a heat pump system while making use of passive shading design strategies.
