Set on a ridge in the Waitakere Ranges on South Titirangi road with views to the east and west of the Manukau Harbour. We were approached to design a four bedroom house on a site that had no driveway access over what is classified a “sensitive” ridge in the Planning maps. We undertook the Resource Consent and designed a home that would maximise the features of the site.
There was already an existing area that had been excavated for a rebound tennis court. We used this for a lower level garage with the master bedroom at the opposite end towards the key aspect towards the harbour. Above this we floated the main form which included two living areas, dining and kitchen with access to surrounding decks towards the north and views to the Manukau.
