This Castor Bay beauty is the first home in Auckland to be built with Formance Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). And after word gets out about the finished product, it’s hard to imagine it will be the last. Elegantly understated box-like forms appear to hover above the ground. Established native bush provides a tranquil and immersive setting, allowing the structure to nestle harmoniously into its surrounds. The beautifully textured exterior can be appreciated from inside, too. A glazed bridge draws in the sun and links the living and sleeping wings. Light timber flooring keeps the interior bright and luxurious, and there’s carpet for quiet in the sleeping spaces. The three peaceful bedrooms are serviced by two tiled bathrooms. The living area and entertainer’s kitchen flow to a glazed deck with barbecue. Positioned up the floating feature staircase, a superb roof deck with spa pool perfectly caps off this contemporary abode. Parking is neatly tucked away under the cantilevered living area. The 180sqm footprint is cleverly utilised.
