Modelled on the vernacular gable form seen widely thoughout Canterbury and Otago, this new home is clad in blackened cedar externally, and uses timber throughout internally on the ceilings as well, with exposed cedar scissor trusses in the living space.

The site is very narrow, so the two gable forms that make up the living pavilion and bedroom pavilion are offset defining the entry and courtyard spaces, while protecting from the prevailing easterly wind.
