This NZIA award-winning house was designed by Patchwork Architecture for the owner of Dorset Construction, Adam Pierson. Located on the corner of a busy suburban street overlooking Kilbirnie, creating the home for the builder and his family was a challenging task.
Transforming the 280 sqm section, by creating as much flat space as possible and capturing killer views over the city and the ocean, were at the heart of this project. The three-bedroom house features an office, two bathrooms, and a flat area for barbecues and entertaining. All of the rooms are based off the living area to make family life practical and comfortable and to utilise the view.
There’s even a rooftop deck, accessed by outside stairs and bright yellow steel gangway. The deck features a cute, double-door shelter on the south side, dubbed ‘the bus stop’, to protect dwellers from the outside elements.
