Poraiti Residence

A difficult site to build on, the house has been designed to take full advantage of views over the estuary, provide privacy from the road and make the most of natural lighting. Clever design allowed us to retain as many of the existing trees from the site while replacing an old cottage that had existing on site prior. The two level residence was designed to enable the new footprint to be of a similar size to the prior cottage and still retain views across the tops of the mature trees.
