This new family home located in a residential area with a rural outlook needed to be a modern entertainer's home, suited to a social lifestyle.

The design responds to provide the owners with a private oasis, that is open to the sun, and surrounding environment.

Externally, the home creates a sense of arrival as you approach, revealing the full extent of the house.

The understated material palette of plaster and locally sourced Timaru stone, continues from the exterior to the interior and forms an immediate connection with the landscape.

Inside, the double-height living area features a raking ceiling with high-level windows to capture both morning and evening sunlight, while overhangs help mitigate the full effect of the midday sun.

This combination of the volumetric space and the high-level windows set up a lovely play of light and shadow across the interior throughout the day.

Polished concrete floors and white walls reference the exterior environment, while also providing a setting for the clients ever evolving art collection.

For the TIDA judges, this modern family home is an outstanding example of how considered architecture can enhance the lifestyle of a growing family, providing an environment that can be enjoyed all year-round.
