A robust sculptural form anchored to its hill site, this dwelling comprises a palette of textured concrete, black zinc and cedar composed and detailed in a refined manner. Exposed structural steel portal frames provide a quality of lightness by way of allowing the upper level living area to float into the view.

Accessed off a quiet right of way, privacy is afforded by solid walls. Entering through a dramatic backlit space, occupants make the transition from privacy to transparency and are rewarded with expansive views over the estuary to the Southern Alp’s beyond from the main living spaces.

Timber finishes provide richness and visual warmth to the interior. A number of bespoke fittings add to the crafted nature of this project. High quality materials used throughout will patina gracefully ensuring the longevity of the dwelling.

The resulting home offers a sense of security, substance and permanence, and affords moments of calm within spaces for reflection, embodying a way of living to better suit its occupants.
