From the Resene Total Colour Awards gallery of entries
This home is situated up a tree lined driveway. This ‘lifestyle’ countryside living project afforded the opportunity to completely remodel an existing, single level post-modern styled masonry home. The brief was formulated by virtue of a collaborative discussion between a client with a vision and a designer able to articulate the changes that would provide the best opportunity for a contemporary redevelopment with a limited material palette.
The brief developed into the realisation of a journey through a built environment that unveils multiple features and spaces to pause and reflect.
The design is characterised by rectilinear gable roof forms on two axis with a strong symmetrical connection linking the entry and garage with the kitchen, informal living the pool and pool house and anchored at the tip with a landscaped water feature. Upstairs the master bedroom and master living space stretch along an interesting axis and visually connect to the main axis either side of the main gable roof form. Intersecting the main axis and perpendicular is a hallway that links the west wing containing formal lounge, media room and games room with three bedrooms, bathrooms and service spaces.
The client wanted a European styled contemporary masonry home that was unique to Coatesville. The colour scheme had to be respectful to the countryside living area. The euro tray standing seam roof cladding in COLORSTEEL® Ironsand provided the strong clean lines and expressed the symmetry of the design. This was contrasted with Resene Sea Fog external plastered walls.
Resene Sea Fog was continued indoors for the general walls, complemented by the master bedroom finished in Resene Sandspit Brown and a second bedroom in Resene Quarter Sea Fog.
The house originally started as an alteration to an existing single level masonry home but evolved into a very significant rebuild when it was discovered that the timber floor throughout was rotten.
