The home has a yin-yang, black and white Feng Shui theme running though it, too, and the windows and doors play a key part in this.
Elite North Harbour measured, customised and supplied the windows and doors on the Lagonda Rise home, says Elite North Harbour general manager Joanna Jin.
“With a decade of experience, we’re one of the leading firms delivering quality aluminium windows and doors in Auckland,” says Jin. “We regularly work on Wayne’s projects and have a great working relationship.”
“Here, we used the Architectural Linear 35 Series by Fairview to manufacture the joinery.”
The Linear series had the strength needed for the picture windows and spans of bifold doors. Plus, the sliding door is designed with flush tracks to optimise an easy indoor-outdoor flow.
The choice of the Linear suite with its square shapes and timber liners further extends the showhome’s classic-meets-modern appeal. The sleek window-and-door suite is powdercoated black to match the wider interior detailing.
“We also provided on-site advice regarding the finer details of placement and customisation of the doors and windows to ideally complement and optimise the home’s architecture.”
The custom black powdercoated balusters on the three-flight central stair also contributed to the home’s black-against-white detailing. The central stairs and their balustrades were designed, custom-manufactured and installed by Continental Stairs – a specialist firm that’s been in business 35 years.
Continental Stairs director Anthony Van Erp says his company has worked with Chancellor Construction on many projects over the past five years, with this house being one of the most upmarket projects they’ve worked on together.
