the exception of the grand oak tree that inspired much of the design. Now clad in a combination of stained cedar and dark titan panel, this house is a statement of modern design.
Cast in a weatherboard mold to echo the cedar cladding, the concrete front wall adds another layer of texture but allows the feature front of the building to shine. Cast concrete has also been introduced inside, with a custom-made fire hearth. Recycled rimu skirtings and architraves soften the dark joinery and concrete, and has also been used in the kitchen and bathroom joinery.
Clean lines and a restrained but deliberate use of angles both inside and out make this house a piece of art in itself. It has been designed and crafted to the highest specification, from the stunning custom kitchen and luxurious tiled bathrooms, to the built-in desk joinery and bookcase. Clever touches such as openings from the living area into the hallway, to transfer both light and heat, a full height cavity slider to allow further privacy into bedroom areas, and a hidden electric hub cupboard make this house both efficient and functional.
