WINNER TRENDS INTERNATIONAL RENOVATION HOME OF THE YEAR 2016
Located in Coatesville on Auckland’s North Shore, this ‘lifestyle’ countryside living project afforded the opportunity to completely remodel an existing single level, post-modern styled masonry home.
The result transformed an original 430m2 into a grand and noteworthy dwelling of 1120m2 gross floor area.
The brief developed into the realisation of a journey from entrance through to backyard unveiling spaces to pause and reflect.
Characterised by rectilinear gable roof forms on two axis with a strong symmetrical connection linking the entry and garage with the kitchen, informal living, the pool and pool house and anchored at the tip with a landscaped water feature.
Upstairs the master bedroom and master living space stretch perpendicular to the main building and visually connect to the backyard either side of the main gable roof form. Connecting the spaces is a hallway that links the west wing containing formal lounge, media room and games room with three bedrooms, bathrooms and service spaces.
The design can be appreciated best by views from the pool house where the repeating gable form is clearly expressed and the vertical cedar highlights the bold design components.
