ADNZ Regional Awards || Results

We're excited to share that two of our projects received recognition at the ADNZ Regional Awards last week, including a Highly Commended for the Hekerua Bay residence!

Located near Oneroa Beach, Waiheke Island, the Hekerua Bay home sits on a very steep site, facing north with views towards Hekerua Bay and beyond. This new build was designed to maximise the coastal views using a limited budget, and provide multiple flexible outdoor spaces.

Our Granny's Bay residence also received recognition in the category for alterations and additions. The approach to the home directs focus to horizontal ribbed zinc clad box mimicking the grey moody hues and rippling waves of the Manukau Harbour. Living spaces are purposefully directed to the view south with a series of decks, layered as platforms down the site.

Smarter Small Homes in Hastings

This residential development in Hastings celebrates being ecologically friendly, and champions the Smarter Small Home concept.

This new residential development enjoys an outlook across the neighbouring public park.  Each of the 11 homes boasts a 6 Homestar rating, which means that the homes are "better quality - warmer, drier, healthier and cost less to run". Based on our Smarter Small Home models, the homes were designed with a focus on space efficiency, low maintenance, and eco-friendly design principles. Solar panels and high standards of insulation are present throughout. 

Construction is underway, with 4 units already complete. 

To see more of our cost effective Smarter Small Home designs, head over to the SSH projects on our wesbite - http://bit.ly/2q5hLPJ
