This house has been gracefully inserted into an established neighbourhood surrounded by mature Kanuka trees. From the private yet inviting entrance-way, the house draws you in, through an interior gallery, to the heart of the home where views expand through the treetops to the mountains beyond. With its well-considered material palette, well defined spaces - including an exterior room that provides long views from a sheltered position - and control of natural light, this house is a pleasure to visit.
