This home is situated in a private, well established street within Tauranga. It is surrounded by similar properties of the 1970’s era. Its positioning allows for views through established trees to the Tauranga Harbour.


Our brief was to completely modernise the home for a busy family’s needs. Creating warm, easy living spaces full of texture and interest while remaining sympathetic to the original 1970’s home.


The original home had great bones. We felt that we should work with this rather than against it. Existing roof lines were retained and reclad. The original brick veneer was preserved and painted and new exterior joinery installed throughout. The existing fibre cement clad areas were removed and clad in cedar to create warmth and a modern touch. The original driveway extended to the rear of the property. This was removed and became the perfect spot for a pool and outdoor entertaining area.
