The Lloyd House is located in the seaside village of Paekakariki, a part of the coastal sand dunes of the extended Kapiti sea front. A limited palette of raw materials is used to create a house that sits discreetly within the bush, retaining the sense of isolation within the site for this family home. Natural aluminium was used to clad the house creating a soft glow from the filtered light. The luminous object within the dense bush sends some glittery signals to the surrounds accompanying the native bird songs.
All furniture and interior linings use pine plywood coated in 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 that provides a subtle contrast to the natural pine colour.
A splash of intense colours inside and out is contrasting with the rawness of the materials. All doors inside are salsa red torrid and tasty Resene Jalapeno while the in-your-face yellow Resene Supernova is used outside as a vivid contrast to the raw aluminium and macrocarpa. Resene Aquaclear clear finish is used on timber floors, Resene Lustacryl on doors and bar shelves and Resene Uracryl 404 on kitchen and bathroom benchtops.
