Box Build wins 2020 TIDA New Zealand Designer New Home of the Year

Congratulations to Box Build, winner of TIDA New Zealand Designer New Home of the Year. Find out more about this coastal home that sits lightly on the land

Key to the design of this holiday home was that it should sit lightly on the land – a site with rolling topography and views that stretch all the way to the Hen & Chickens Islands.

The initial concept of a pavilion-style home was developed into a 28m long structure containing all the living spaces, sitting on top of concrete block plinth.


The upper level cantilevers beyond the lower level by 4m on each side and by 2.5m at the front of the home – an impressive feat of high-engineering that results in the bulk of the home appearing to float in space.

The sophisticated-rustic material palette ties in with the rural setting, with zinc tray cladding the central connector and vertical cedar used on the two wings.

The judges noted that while this is a holiday home with a relaxed feel, it also has a level of formality that fits seamlessly alongside other buildings in a quality subdivision with strict covenants.
