Back to basics


Nestled on a steep Bay of plenty coastline this kiwi Bach blends seamlessly into the relaxed unpretentious surroundings.  A simple cedar-clad form consisting of 2 bedrooms and large open plan living. Huge stacker sliding doors allow the interior living spaces to sprawl out onto the extensive sun-drenched deck overlooking the water’s edge.


Using the existing landform a garage and large storage area is tucked under the deck to utilise the restrictive building platform to its potential. Matai timber floors create a warmth throughout the home.


This is a home that reincarnates the typical Kiwi bach with all the modern touches expected of a high-end architectural home. Solar Photovoltaic panels, fully tiled bathroom and ensuite, walk-in dressing room, plenty of storage, extensive kitchen to name a few.  All in under 150.0sq,m.

Space economising


An easy living, easy care 2 bedroom home was the brief to replace the existing, well-loved bach. Slightly elevated this home enjoys views shafts down the eighth fairway of the local golf course.


Living areas follow the sun path throughout the day with the day bed set up for those restful afternoons.

An easy-care home with aerated concrete panel cladding, colorsteel roof, and aluminum joinery but accents of cedar and exposed timber beams give this home a feeling of warmth and give the home a sense of personality.

One of many small but smart homes we have designed. This 'tiny' home is under 100 square metres. Highly efficient use of space. Features include bedroom in the loft and despite the size there is a place for everything. All future proofed to allow for additional areas as required
