The tricky location was no problem for this clever and ultra-contemporary home in Kaiteriteri. The build is beautifully sculpted into a steep site, making the most of natural contours, elevation and views – the sea to the east and hills to the west. Clad in vertical black cedar, the living-dining-kitchen cantilevers out over the accommodation pod, which is recessed into the hillside below. With three bedrooms, four bathrooms and two living areas, the home exudes space and comfort. Extensive glazing invites light and warmth into the interior where modern, clean lines prevail. High-end materials tie in superbly with the exterior, especially in the kitchen with its generous central island and picture-perfect view. The upstairs alfresco spaces provide a wonderful extension of indoor living. Glass balustrades offer an uninterrupted outlook and allow the space to merge with the landscape. The garage is viewed as a separate pod in white monolithic plaster finish.
