This three-bedroom, two-bathroom family home in Motueka marries sustainable building principles with appealing architectural design. Clean, contemporary lines are balanced by rough-sawn oak flooring and locally grown Lawson cypress cladding. Solar power, rainwater collection and a sustainable septic system are just a few of the environmentally friendly features in this warm, healthy and comfortable abode. Airy, bright and efficient, it takes care of itself and its residents with ease. In order to make the most of the passive solar design, a large verandah shades the entire western elevation. The result is year-around comfort and seamless indoor-outdoor connection. Thanks to extensive glazing in the open-plan area, sweeping views across the valley are beautifully captured. Large grounds offer space for the family to grow their own food. Plenty of preserves can be stored in the fantastically functional kitchen. It’s a hive of activity during harvest time.
