Communication and collaboration are key words when describing the connection between the architect and builder of your new home, and fundamental to the success of the project.

Casas Design Architecture Studio creates architectural designs for new buildings and renovations of all types. Working closely with building contractors helps ensure a precision, cost-effective outcome, says company director, Argentinian Daniel Casas.

"For this contemporary, clean-lined house, we worked with our long-time constructor in the Wairarapa area, Steve Pilbrow Ltd.

"While a close, reliable partnership is always an asset, it was of even greater significance here as the house has so many aspects to it."

The contemporary 508m² house comprises mainly interconnected single-storey volumes, in a configuration that allows flexible living.

"There are two living areas, offering an easy separation between parents and children, four bedrooms, plus a master suite," says Casas.

"A large rumpus room connects directly with the children's bedrooms and there is an expansive office studio on the top level. A designer kitchen features and there's a high level of material and product specification and finishes throughout."

Indoor-outdoor connections were also an important factor when developing the design of this conceptually sophisticated house.

Modern family home with outdoor seating area. Aluminium sliding doors ensure a seamless flow between the inside and outside. The home's distinctive double-glazed green tinted windows and large sliding doors are set off by extruded metal frames.

"As outdoor activities are an integral part of the family lifestyle, the interiors and exteriors needed to merge seamlessly. To achieve this, the living volumes open onto the pool area. There is also a pool house, which includes a gymnasium, and a tennis court."

"It was a design challenge to meet all the needs of the client. But with trusted constructor Steve Pilbrow on board, we were able to tweak or optimise as required. Together we achieved an economically built, pristine designer home."
