With a panoramic outlook taking in the Tararua Range, Manawatū River mouth and the beachside village below, this hilltop home offers year-round holiday ambience. The brief from the owners was for a compact, clever, energy-efficient and multi-functional home with the luxuries of a bespoke architectural build. They are delighted with the result, which delivers serious value for the budget. Energy modelled and built using the six Passive House Principles, this clever model delivers consistent, year-round temperature comfort and energy efficiency. Thermally broken joinery and insulated slab flooring are just some of the elements that make this house work hard for its owners. The exterior palette of white coloursteel and vertical cedar cladding is at home in the coastal environment, and the aesthetic is continued indoors. The crisp, calm interior references Scandinavian and Japanese design ideals, as you’ll see in the blonde ply ceiling, whitewashed walls and custom shoji screen. Step inside the 159sqm home and you’ll be greeted by a sense of peace. Bliss.
