[ NEW HOUSE ]
A new house on a semi-rural steeply sloping site, set among mature native trees in the Auckland seaside suburb of Maraetai.
This family home has been designed to reflect and relate to the topography of the site, and encompass the outlook, orientation, and elevated context of the location.
The oddly shaped section and contour presented challenges which defined the building envelope to some degree, but at the same time created an interesting footprint and three dimensional form.
Design & documentation: 10 months
