karapiro house

This lean, low profile home sprawls above lake Karapiro, in the foothills of Maungatautari Mountain, Cambridge. From the lakeside, its laid-back silhouette blends seamlessly into its elevated natural surroundings yet the house's unique low-slung aesthetic provides a private and stealthy presence  from the roadside.

Beautiful bandsawn cedar, and wood textured concrete tilt-slab walls are the focal features of this statement home. This amazing house is certainly an eye catcher but retains subtlety with the use of a natural colour palette and materials.

This home won best 'Residential New Home over 300m2' at the National ADNZ Resene Architectural Design Awards 2020, and was Runner Up in the 2021 TIDA Homes – Designer Homes Awards.
