Located on the coastal North Shore of Auckland, the narrow site boasting views over Rangitoto Island and Hauraki Gulf required a layered architectural response.

Following demolition of the previous house, this new build was designed to fulfil the client’s specific requirements.

This stylish contemporary home incorporates three distinct living spaces with an emphasis on use of natural materials.

A strong schist rock blade wall penetrates the internal/external threshold in this light-filled, three storey home.

Steel joinery with dark tones and vertical dark stained cedar contrasts strongly with white bagged brick cladding over earthy stone features and dark metal cladding. Internally, timber accent features were used through the kitchen and the bathrooms softening up the areas substantially.

A double height space has been created in the dining area enabling a visual connection to the upper level master bedroom wing.
