Worsleys Road

Perched in the Port Hills above Christchurch, this house commands a panoramic outlook over the city from the Southern Alps up to the Kaikoura ranges. The 405m2 home comprises a double garage, scullery, open-plan living, four bedrooms and three bathrooms on the ground floor while the first floor master suite includes a bedroom, ensuite and living area.

The dark hued solid plaster ground floor, contrasted with elements of cedar anchors the house while the light bronze anodised top box floats above like a lantern.

Architect: AW Architects - Andrew Watson

The design creates multiple sheltered zones with large roof overhangs and deck spaces in a setting exposed to high winds and heat. Extensive landscaping features volcanic rock walls, lawn terraces, paving and gravel pathways softened with grassy mounds, shrubs and trees.

Project details

The striking entry contains a quartzite slate wall and full height cedar pivot doors. Warm oak flooring continues throughout, while full height glazing flows seamlessly to the exterior. A mixture of white HPL and birch plywood joinery along with Mt Blanc granite benchtops feature in the home, and neutral walls provide space for the owners large works of art.

This magnificent home replaces the owner’s previous house lost in the Port Hills fire.
