Te Pahu House

Architecturally designed home, built in 2001. Designed by architect Glen Brebner of Boon Goldsmith Bhasker Team Architecture was well ahead of its time as this 10 year old home would fit in with some of the modern architecture seen today. Interesting construction with exposed aggregate concrete floors and onduline/timber batten cladding.

Winner of the NZIA- Resene local award for Architecture in 2002. The judges comments were: “In response to what he euphemistically coined a “well defined budget”, the Architect has encapsulated a suburb living environment within an elegantly simple, Onduline-clad rectangle, capped with a gently raking monopitch Zincalume roof. Of modest proportions, this house is both economic and environmentally responsible. Yet the design complies a hierarchy of internal spaces from canyon-like circulation to double-height open plan living space.”
