Overlooking the Omokoroa Harbour this award winning home is a great example of eco-friendly and sustainable construction methods. Designed and constructed to maximise passive solar performance.

Using solid poured ICF polystyrene blocks for the home’s exterior and interior walls, the solid poured concrete theme was carried through to the roof design where precast uni span panels with a concrete topping have been used to make the building a fully insulated concrete structure.


IThe exterior of the home is clad with a mix of Steel and Tube Seamlok Colorsteel cladding and Herman Pacific Western Red Cedar. By using the darker colour on the Colorsteel and the lighter natural colour on the cedar they have ensured longevity and low maintenance to the building envelope by considering each product’s ability to sustain high UV exposure.

Low E max glass throughout the home’s is another example of using the homes structure to repel the harsh UV light whilst lowering thermal loss.

 

Internally the polished concrete floors operate as a battery to absorb heat during the day then slowly release this overnight, conversely during summer the floor reduces heat into the home and cross ventilation via the large stacking slider doors moves


the air around to passively temper the internal climate.

The outdoor deck areas provide both covered and non-covered spaces and surround the custom built swimming pool. All areas of the house benefit from the ultimate in indoor and outdoor flow. 

Other features within the home include a contemporary designer kitchen, feature lighting, full home entertainment and automation, audio and security
