This two-storey home in the heart of the city is designed to adapt to different phases of client’s life while accommodating all their personal & social activities.
The 550sqm site is flanked by rental flats and a busy road. The challenge was to accommodate a 350sqm home on a tight urban section while maintaining a strong sense of privacy and ensuring all day sun. The boomerang shape plan that evolved from the sun-shadow study provided the ideal solution.
The contemporary form of the residence was influenced by the commercial buildings in close proximity to the site. The large white plastered surfaces accentuate the square edges while the dark cedar softens the tone and massing.
Location: Linton Street, Palmerston North
