Waiheke Island House
Although technically an alteration, this project was effectively a complete rebuild of the existing house to take advantage of its spectacular clifftop location on Waiheke Island. In fact only the basement of the original house remains! The house is designed to maximise views to both the east and west with a variety of outdoor living spaces to provide shelter in various wind conditions. The aluminium wall cladding and Colorsteel roofing were chosen to withstand the harsh marine environment. To add texture and warmth, the local Waiheke stone has been used around the entry and in the garden walls.
