Our clients approached us with this unique project, to be set in a beautiful estate in New Zealand in close proximity to the coast and mountains. The house design is a single storey contemporary 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a guest wing with the capacity to be occupied completely independently from the main house. The guest wing with the additional bedrooms is separated from the main house by a beautiful dividing rammed earth wall.

In addition to the first design, our clients commissioned us to create a second concept for this home that utilized a kit construction method. The manufacturer is located in Queensland, Australia, so the building design had to consider transportation to the site in a sea container. The wall and the roof design was refined to create a home with a similar look and feel to the initial concept but sympathetic to the new construction method.

 

The project is currently in the design stage.
