Te Ahiawa

Our brief was to provide a modest family home that encapsulates surrounding native bush while providing an interior space to suit a young family.

A heavy, minimal fa├žade was created with careful shifts between planes which provides an approach to the home that anticipates an experience beyond. Once inside a backdrop of native bush scenes appear through windows like pictures.

Solid brick walls to the exterior add texture and warm color to the utilitarian blacksteel siding.

The interior continues the brick but also includes concrete and plaster which complete the interior spaces.
