The Cliffs

The Cliffs

    Location: Nelson

This design (currently under construction) on a dramatic cliff top site in Nelson takes in uninterrupted views across Nelson and Tasman Bay.

The simple but strong form bends and cantilevers delicately toward north and Haulashore Island whilst also opening the heart of the house up to a rear courtyard protected from the sea breeze.

Materials are a balance of metal and timber cladding.

The house has very high levels of insulation, unique passive heating systems and motorized sliding screens.

Custom designed rain chains, nautical colours and screens shaped with influence from the jagged rocks below all give reference to the coastal location.
