Box Living in Coastal Kaiwaka - New Zealand
Located on an exposed coastal site in Kaiwaka, the design of this house called for cladding in a dark colour tone.
Vulcan Cladding in Ebony was chosen for its inherent stability and durability in this application.
The same Vulcan timber in a clear finish was used on the soffits and continued internally into the living areas providing a striking contrast with the dark exterior weatherboards, while at the same time bringing the warmth of timber to the interior.
With exceptional detail and style, this beautiful home was designed and built by innovative Auckland company, Box.
Box fuse the businesses of architecture and construction – to get architects to start to think like builders and vice versa.
Then, by using elements of repetition in both the technical design details and the process of building, they aim to make the process faster and more cost certain.
