Marketed by Tricia Lafferty & Kym Aikin

This house rests at the harbour's edge in the leafy Auckland suburb of Westmere. It whispers to you and calms your soul as you are welcomed inward. Every moment spent ensures a connection which wraps you in a blanket of certainty and an understanding that an architectural masterpiece can indeed be a place of total peace and tranquillity. A house which most definitely feels like a home. Our owner is committed to eastern spirituality and nourishment of the soul and the role of Gary Lawson and Nicolas Stevens of Stevens Lawson Architects were to interpret this in a New Zealand context with a house that belonged to this place. They aimed to create an earthy and soulful home, a place of spiritual calm and a peaceful haven in the city. A rough, textured in-situ cast concrete wall forms a spine, defining the ridgeline and the circulation flow through the house. Landscaped courtyards open off either side allowing sunlight, air and nature into the heart of the house. The steeply angled roof planes and peripheral walls are clad in cedar shingles, like a feather cloak draped over the structure. The living areas overlook the waterfront, while spaces for sleeping, yoga and music open onto private courtyards. Full height glazing gives a sense of transparency, allowing the presence of the harbour to be felt throughout the house. This is also a healthy house specifically designed to minimise toxins and electromagnetic radiation. Natural materials, finishes and hand made products have been used throughout; while the structure is made from timber, with no structural steel. Employing passive design principles, the house includes photovoltaic cells, rainwater harvesting, LED lighting, and a charging station for an electric vehicle.

We are very proud to be involved in the matching of new owners to this utterly unique 409m2 home set on 1077m2 of prime Westmere waterfront in the prestigious Rawene Avenue. Please call either Tricia or Kym for a confidential chat.
