Harbour House

Located high on the Northern Hills with a grand stand view of Wellington harbour and city is the Harbour house.

The design solution was to create a robust glass, concrete and steel pavilion that was overclad on the outside with cedar. Vertical exterior fins have been carefully positioned to ensure privacy but also to ensure the windows have ample access to light and views. On the interior many of the concrete block walls are exposed and polished. The palette of material is carefully controlled with a mixture of Cedar, Victorian Ash, polished concrete and concrete tiles.

This is a contemporary house that is very easy to live in. A house that provides a comfortable and enjoyable living environment. A house that is a bespoke solution to a spectacular site. It is testimony to two of our clients as neighbours that they have worked together through the design process to craft two very special adjoining houses.
