Ponting Fitzgerald Westmere House

First post in a LONG time – I have been overseas for 5 months so my priorities had shifted, but I’m back in New Zealand now and ready to get back to posting!

This following house is a few houses down the road from me, and I have always admired it since it was completed a few years ago. The house doesn’t look too large in photos but it is absolutley huge in real life, with a living area of 8700sqf (along with a ratings valuation of $11,000,000 – Auckland is not a cheap city for housing!!)

This house is largely made up of concrete, cedar, glass and oak flooring. There is also an ongoing theme of water throughout the house (as the pictures will show). The flow of water throughout the home leads outside to the cliff edge infinity pool. This property truly is a large scale sculpture curated through the minds of its owners and the architect. Outdoors seamlessly flow to indoor living spaces, perfect for entertaining on a large scale.

This is all I will leave the writing part as for this post – the pictures can tell a better description than I ever could!

Stevens Lawson Headland House

The below property is a beach home located on a headland on Waiheke Island. The house, designed by Stevens Lawson architects is made up of three curved, timeber-clad pod forms. The windows of the pods frame scenes from the dramatic 270 degree views on offer from the property. The architect has described the house as having “an organic layout resembling pebbles scattered on the beach”. It was designed with a sense of mystery in mind along with the owners wanting the home to be unpretentious. Take a look!
