Mortimer / Semple Home - Christchurch

A simple series of rectangular forms cascading down a steep, north-facing site makes this a dramatic home, enjoying amazing views over the ocean and city.

The original home on this site, high on Clifton Hill, was destroyed in the Canterbury Earthquakes.

Our clients came to us with a simple brief.  A modern, family friendly home that performed well and provided a warm, healthy and comfortable home.

The site is very steep, north-facing and enjoys incredible views over the ocean and city.  The design was carefully undertaken, in close collaboration with our clients, to achieve a home that maximises the views, ensures privacy and achieves our clients' desired outcome.
