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 recently won best 'Residential New Home over 300m2' at the National ADNZ Resene Architectural Design Awards 2020.
