Style and sustainability were top of mind in this architecturally designed four-bedroom home.
The open-plan living, dining and kitchen zone leads to two separate outdoor entertaining areas, one an attractive covered deck complete with feature fireplace. The kitchen was custom designed to suit the client’s entertaining and day-to day-requirements. Stone and timber benchtops, premium fittings, quality appliances and plenty of storage ensure a designer touch. More importantly, this heart of the home fits the client’s brief and is a cohesive part of the overall plan.
In this elegant 280sqm Waikato home are two bathrooms, large picture windows, raked ceilings and internal access to double garaging. A carefully selected colour palette in the living areas lends a feeling of space to this intuitively planned build. Sustainable features include solar power, a 25,000L tank for collecting rain water for use in the house, under-slab insulation, above industry-standard insulation elsewhere, LED lighting and renewable timber wall cladding, with consideration to recycle and reduce waste.
