one with nature

Paekakariki family home

A limited palette of raw materials is used to create this Paekakariki family home that sits discreetly within the bush, retaining the sense of isolation within the site.

All furniture and interior linings use pine plywood coated in Environmental Choice approved Resene Aquaclear clear urethane to a datum of 2.4 metres. The hardwearing and low sheen finish is juxtaposed to a more sophisticated finish from above the datum and on the ceilings with Resene Colorwood Whitewash, which provides a subtle contrast to the natural pine colour.

A splash of intense colours inside and out contrasts with the rawness of the materials. All doors inside are salsa red torrid and tasty Resene Jalapeno (spicy red) while the in-your-face yellow Resene Supernova (bold yellow) is used outside as a vivid contrast to the aluminium and macrocarpa.

Resene Aquaclear clear finish is also used on timber flooring, with Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel on doors and bar shelves and Resene Uracryl 404 low sheen urethane-acrylic providing a durable finish on kitchen and bathroom benchtops. Resene Uracryl 404 is a unique high performance two component finish coat with excellent resistance to abrasion, moisture, petroleum solvents and mineral and vegetable oil.

Surrounded in bush and birdsong, this home is a haven from the city.s
