Nestled on the hillside in the prestigious Parklands subdivision, this home maximises the expansive views of Rotorua City below. The clients brief was to achieve a striking design that fitted the landscape while meeting strict town planning requirements.
The design brief for this house was to include the use of stack bonded block, blackened cedar and linea weatherboards. Also required was a central light well-water feature which has windows to an internal bathroom. The entry hall has a feature ply ceiling with concealed lighting and a large water feature at the end.
Designed for one owner but not completed, the couple that purchased the propety were so impressed with the concept they commissioned MA to complete the project. This substantial house on the shores of Lake Tarawera captures stunning views of Mt Tarawera from all living areas.
