17 Kotuku

This home was specifically designed as a showhome for a housing company (Buildtech). The design is low maintenance, and concentrates on showing their clients how spaces can flow easily, how the interior environment can be a pleasureable experience, and how the buildings should interact with their exterior environment.


Cladding materials are a mixture of fibre cement with battens, Colorcote steel, and cedar shiplap. The building form borrows from the rural setting it looks out on in one aspect, rather than the traditional suburban aesthetic it backs onto. 

The home has four bedrooms, an office, and two living areas.
