Tautari Street, Orakei
The house for a big family is arranged on a ridge with views to the North onto the Waitemata Harbour and the Okahu Bay valley and to the South onto a lush native forest or bush belt. The building is arranged around North and South facing courtyards.
Planting of native trees and plants for low maintenance and to attract native birds around the building is very important to the clients.
The predominant pure materials are concrete, glass, wood (cedar cladding, reclaimed wood and sustainably sourced wood) and reclaimed bricks.
The project is in progress, photos of the project will be posted on the website in 2019.
