“A very high level of craftsmanship by Jarrod and his team, quality and commitment that also impressed the jury” Winner of 2020 NZIA Gisborne Hawkes Bay Architecture Award

This architecturally designed home just south of Napier, takes full advantage of its rural setting with extensive views over the east coast and local vineyards.

Clad in cedar and Corten steel, this generous 400sqm home of four light-filled bedrooms, four bathrooms and two living areas is designed around a central courtyard. This allows the owners to move seamlessly between outdoor entertaining areas to the many shared and private interior spaces.

The cedar theme continues inside, and is used to create connected, boxed living zones. With the clever use of hidden doors, the owners are able to close off their private quarters from the main living areas.

The kitchen features glossy white joinery and a marble splashback and benchtop. It opens into the entertaining area complete with a stunning built-in, iron-clad fireplace.

With floor to ceiling windows throughout, the owners are able to enjoy the breathtaking views over the local wine country in every direction, no matter the weather.
