Great Barrier Road Family Home

This four bedroom family home was designed as having two separate wings: a living and a bedroom wing, with the entry area being the connecting ‘hinge’ between the two.

The entry area has extensive floor to ceiling glazing; upon entering the immediate views express feeling of expansiveness, elevation and integration of the surrounding nature.

The bedroom wing consists of 2 levels, separating the rumpus and main bedroom from the children’s area.

The living area is positioned for the sun and northern sea views. All bedrooms enjoy that same view. Clerestory windows on the eastern side allow the morning sun to penetrate, warming the rooms on the upper level.

The lower floor acts as the anchoring element of the building to the site, with both bedrooms having access to the garden at ground level.
