As the Williams own family home, Caryn unusually found herself in the position of client, gifting her a rare opportunity to experience the process from a client perspective.
Caryn’s brief was for an easy flow 290sqm modern 4 bedroom home plus study to house this busy family of 5. With 3 active children under 6, the Williams needed a durable home with plenty of space and areas for active little people to grow. With the house positioned in a quintessential Hawkes Bay vineyard, making the most of the environment was an essential element. The house features a number of indoor areas that flow out to large decks and lawn. An exterior of James hardy Linear weatherboard, cedar fascia, and schist columns gave it the rustic yet modern desired look, and positions it well in the environment. Inside, timber flooring flowing through form the front entrance all the way through to and throughout the large modern designer kitchen. A Concrete patio and decking surround to encapsulate the home with a cedar portico roof leading to a large coastal backyard.
