Contemporary Post & Beam Residence At The Bottom Of A Slope In Auckland

Located in Auckland, New Zeeland, this residence was just completed this year. It’s a contemporary family home situated at the bottom of a slope where it benefits from privacy as well from exceptionally beautiful views. The residence was a project by BOX Living, a New Zeeland-based company that specializes in modular design.

With a total surface of 160 square meters, this family home is spacious and, most of all, bright and full of light. The lights get though the large windows and glass walls. Moreover, the house is opened towards the exterior and the ground level is almost like an extension of the outdoors inside the home.

In total, the residence has 4 bedrooms and a series of airy and spacious living areas. The top section cantilevers over the external terrace and it provides shade. The terrace is a covered living space and it leads onto the pool and the lawn.

The exterior of the residence features rectilinear lines and lots of glass. This gives it a contemporary look and it also makes it stand out. In addition, it has a very nice and subtle rustic feel given by the cedar structure and the wall panels.

The exterior is stained dark and it allows the residence to blend in more easily into the surroundings. By using engineered timber instead of steel for the construction of the house, the architects chose a more suitable solution for the seismic zones found in New Zeeland.
