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.
