Bella Vista Road

A bush environment and a steep slope combine to determine the shape of the house, built in terraces. The Hauraki Gulf, offering beautiful views, lies to the South, the open ‘window’ to capture the sun’s energy to the Northeast. The design takes both directions into account and requires double glazing and very high insulation to create and maintain a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. Among the sustainability features are renewable materials and natural finishes, as well as rainwater collection and on-site wastewater disposal.
