Set on a five-hectare Cherry Orchard on the Clutha river in Queensberry, this ‘cottage’ incorporates the needs of a working orchard as well as an office to welcome and meet with clients. The design attaches the large office in the cottage to the implement shed via a covered carport. Polished concrete flooring and ply walls are durable materials for the needs of day to day work yet maintain a high spec finish. The exposed trusses and bi-fold windows give the rooms depth and create an indoor-outdoor feel.
What began as a rundown Waiheke bach with a majestic view, was transformed into a stunning holiday home. Every element of the building was designed to make the most of its tranquil outlook, with a high-spec kitchen and bathroom framed by windows and doors that led to an outdoor area made for soaking in the scenery day and night. Since the completion of the main house, we have also returned to build the happy client a matching self-contained cottage.
Timsfield Family Home
This simple design allows separate living areas for a young family and maximises storage space with the attic trusses in the roof. Because of the simple design and relatively low labour costs, the owners were able to spend more on materials giving this house a beautiful hi-spec finish - ply ceilings, a designer plywood kitchen and hardwood verandah beams to name a few.
This project was the definition of a fixer-upper, with the bones of a quirky 70’s Titirangi bush bach that had be worn away by the elements. We worked with the client to rebuild every inch, while saving the best original aspects and bring new life, love and warmth to this unique abode. The result was a Titirangi home that will stand the test of time and a very happy family who will enjoy it for years to come.
This is a house of great design, with functionality at the fore. The two wings on each side of the house allow privacy and give the owners space and distance to the main living area. The insitu concrete fireplace gives a lovely warmth and creates a nice area to relax in. Set on a twenty-acre section in Queensberry, it has amazing views of the Clutha river and the surrounding mountains.
