In a sea of McMansions was a double section with a lovely aspect over Pahatanui inlet. The brief from this family was for a substantial family home and pool that was an oasis amid the suburban surrounds. We imbued the home with colour, craft and unique features. An underground wine cellar tempts one towards an early Pinot Gris. Then it’s off to the sun lounge for snacks made on the John Calvert feature curved bench. A double height central gable ties the two gable wings together and allows the soft light and views to the inlet and surrounding rural landscape to be enjoyed from all areas.
