Takitimu House - Auckland, New Zealand

Nested in the hills above Okahu Bay, this family dwelling is a sanctuary from busy Auckland city.

Project details

Vulcan Cladding (WB10 Profile 145x20) in Protector - Graphite
Sand Decking (DK14S 115x21) in Protector - Pearl
Auckland, New Zealand

Expertly designed, this home features a spacious open plan living area seamlessly flowing onto a large deck.

A three tier structure fabricated almost completely from FSC® certified structural pine provides space for four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The roof supports a large solar panel array to provide renewable energy.

Clad exclusively in vertical Vulcan Cladding in WB10 profile, the designers were able to achieve a vertical shiplap look, without any visible fasteners. The Vulcan Cladding is finished in Protector - Graphite, a dark grey which is expected to fade into the surroundings.

The decking, pre-finished in Protector - Pearl has already begun to silver off, providing the ultimate low maintenance deck.
