Built in conjunction with Lost Craft Carpentry


Designed as both a family home and occasional rental accommodation, we had to create a space that could be snugly lived in, while capturing the holiday-like essence of a coastal getaway.

We believe in working to our environment, and with stunning views, we created a home that revelled in its prime location. High-quality materials formed the backbone of this timeless structure, with timber ceilings, oil-stationed cedar and copper detailing all contributing to the home’s decadence.

The result? A modern getaway with the heart and soul of a classic kiwi bach. The build winning the 2014 Master Builders House of the Year for the $1-2million New Home Category and both the Regional and National Categories was testament to the it’s enduring appeal.

This home was built in conjunction with Lost Craft Carpentry Company Ltd.
