Point Wells, North Auckland
The brief for this house was "a concrete bunker in a tropical jungle." Subject to coastal conditions and weather the house needed to be of robust and durable construction. Largely single story, with a master bedroom suite at second storey level, the house is approached by a long glazed walkway which encloses a swimming pool and courtyard. Of masonry construction with plastered masonry veneer, the interiors combine elements of exposed honed concrete block and solid plastered walls with timber ceilings and tiled floors.
