Elegant Beach Side Residence Showcases Unique Design Features

POINT WELLS, NEW ZEALAND
This elegantly designed project was a rebuild / extension of an existing house in the popular beach side township of Point Wells, near Omaha in New Zealand.

The owner, Wally Bower and his company Warkworth Design, was the Architect, Project Manager and Builder of this home with some help from Britton Builders to complete the project.

The warm and inviting residence has an open plan living area that incorporates unique design features to make it stand out from other homes in the street. Some of these design features include uber-chic concrete walls that have a wood grain finish, with modern tall, narrow Breezway Altair Louvre Windows with external screens to provide natural ventilation when required.

The project also incorporates Vantage Residential series joinery, and obscure glass for privacy near the plasma solid aluminium panel door at the main entry. Overhead glazing has been incorporated into the front and side patio decking area, while polished concrete floors exude sophistication at first sight. Overall a beautifully designed home that is comfortable all year round.

New Home Maximises Views Over Bay with Generous Forms of Glazing

WHANGAPARAOA, NEW ZEALAND

This new home in Whangaparaoa is nestled amongst the branches of protected Pohutukawa, looking through greenery to the Wade River as it flows into Arkles Bay. The brief for this project involved a new four bedroom home, with complete privacy from the street and maximum views over the water.

Fulfilling this purpose, vertical metal cladding wraps up and over an enigmatic angular form that sits close to a cliff edge. From the street, glimpses of glazing, living areas, vertical cedar cladding and low-maintenance bagged masonry can be seen from oblique angles. However, the visual impact of the metal cladding cutting through the centre of the site draws the eye, and provides a sense of the mysterious.

To the rear of the site, façades are softened with the careful combination of materials and forms, with generous glazing looking out to the bay. Breezway Louvre Windows have been incorporated next to the fixed glazing to help maintain the uninterrupted views out onto the bay while providing natural ventilation when required.

A number of outdoor living areas are apportioned along three edges of the home. These are screened and sheltered to provide protection against prevailing and unpredictable winds. The angular roof form ties a single storey garage to the first floor bedroom and living spaces, folding gently over the rectangular south-eastern façade.

A central stairwell framed by double-height glazing works in tandem with an aligned skylight and void, creating a light well through the heart of the home over an interior garden.

Extensively glazed for maximum sun and views with the help of some strategically placed Breezway Louvre Windows for natural ventilation, the living and kitchen bookend the dining space. The kitchen borrows visual elements from the exterior and a butler’s pantry and second lounge are cleverly incorporated into the open plan design. There’s a choice of alfresco living spaces – take your pick from the sun-drenched dining space or the sheltered covered area with comfy couches and outdoor kitchen. The Master suite features a sweeping daybed with stunning water views.
