Hillsborough Road

This is a challenging site with the need to maximize southerly harbour views resulting in a ‘breaking-up’ of the house, with open outdoor spaces reaching between a northern and a southern part, thus allowing the sun to penetrate deep into the southern living areas of the house. The rounded shape of the living areas serves to capture seamlessly beautiful views from the south (Manukau Harbour) to the east (Mangere). Solar hot water heating, double glazing, non-toxic and non-allergenic materials and finishes also feature in this house.
