Homes

House on a rock

A large boulder discovered during excavation of a Port Hills site became a central feature of this home designed by architect Ken Powrie for his family.

Back in black

Concealed on a bush-clad hillside site above Piha, the dark facade of this home mimics the tones of the ironsand on the beach below.

A contemporary home of rhythm and green

This family home, on the edge of Cox’s Bay Reserve in Westmere, Auckland, was conceived as a place of privacy — a contemporary urban abode incorporating considered moments of whimsy.

A sleek pavilion at Lake Rotoiti

The simplicity of this rural setting gave way to an expertly conceived design allowing for considered moments of solitude on the lakefront. A charcoal-toned roof and vertical timber cladding ensure the form blends into the hills behind, which are blanketed in verdant natives.

Reimagined glory

Marrying the elegance and style of New York with the outdoors lifestyle of Auckland, this elegant Remuera house delivers the best of both worlds.

Moonlight on the hill

This home on Moonlight Bay Road hangs perilously above the Tasman Sae a mere five minutes’ drive from downtown Raglan.
