Design and Build
Brief: Another brand new modern home but seemingly built on an old rubbish tip… from the first spade turned we were unearthing the history of Waihi! The focus of our design here was on an open, sunny outdoor living and entertaining area. Apart from the rock & rubble filled earth our main hurdle in achieving this was privacy, being that the outdoor living circle ended right on the footpath. This proximity to the public meant a substantial fence was needed. Because the brick used on the house made such a strong statement we incorporated it into our fence design along with the sleek look of timber slats. A two tiered deck added some elevation to an otherwise flat section and garden. ‘Matangi Gold’ exposed aggregate driveway and paths complemented the colours in the brick and framed the planting nicely. The lush foliage planting scheme is pocketed with splashes of bold colour provided by alstromeria, dwarf canna and calla lily.
