2021 Canterbury Architecture Award, Registered Master Builders House of the Year 2021 Gold Award and Registered Master Builders House of the Year Regional 2021 Lifestyle Award - Kitchen recipient, this stunning modernist home has been designed and meticulously detailed for an architect’s own family. Set on a long north-south orientated site in Merivale, the site is surrounded by an established garden and an incredible backdrop of trees in Hagley Park.

Expansive lengths of thermally broken glazing connect the house with large external terraces, pool and garden, and also ensure uninterrupted views to the surrounding garden and lawn.

Project details

Architectural Build

Architect: Sheppard & Rout Architects

Large picture windows of glass extend above the ceiling level to provide vistas from various areas of the house to the trees and park beyond. The house is considered a social house, with large slide-away doors, expansive double-height volumes and a plan arrangement that places the kitchen area at its core. A highly considered palette of luxurious finishes have been selected throughout, which include engineered oak flooring, wool carpets, Italian polished plaster and exotic blends of natural stone, oak and soft-touch joinery.

Project details

The house includes the latest solar panel power technologies, hydronic water and space heating systems, integrated heat pumps and automated lighting and audio systems – all seamlessly integrated into the houses design. Whilst the interiors are flooded with natural light, concealed LED lighting effects bring the house to life at night.
