Shingled Villa Refurbishment
A remake of a traditional single storey wooden Parnell villa for a repeat client on upper St Georges Bay Road. A simple classic exterior belies the surprise inside.Crossing under the shelter of the ubiquitous and familiar lean to rolled verandah the standard height front door opens to reveal a grand staircase centred in the soaring entrance leading to the more private reaches of the master suite above.
Beyond this dramatic entry is a series of open plan living eating and cooking spaces which open onto a warp around verandah where access is gained onto sculptural concrete terraced steps leading down to a clipped lawn and cottage garden. A corner baywindow captures sun and a breathtaking city view of the leafy village down the valley to skytower and city skyline framed by the waitemata harbour.
