While the  setting for this home offered spectacular views of the Waikato River, the tricky site posed challenges for the designer – only 400m² of the 906m² site was available for the home itself.

Despite this, the design response has produced a four-bedroom, two bathroom house that makes the most of everything from the northern sun to intimate views of the river.


Inspired by the classic New York loft, this
Inspired by the classic New York loft, this beautifully designed two-storey home enjoys spectacular views of the Waikato River wending its way along below.

The two-level family/entertainer’s home has an appealing semi-industrial aesthetic with black standing seam cladding, ruby red, reused brick and golden-toned wood floors.

Extensive glazing maximises views and light, but instead of huge impersonal sheets of glass, the glazing is segmented – giving a more human scale while again drawing on the semi-industrial feel.

This is a home that provides everything that is needed for a contemporary lifestyle, within a style reminiscent of the classic New York loft.
