Architect: Adams Delamere
Located on a scenic ridge in Auckland's Eastern Bays, this project focused on a substantial interior renovation of the kitchen and family living area, bathrooms, installing a residential hydraulic lift and the construction of new exterior decks to maximize the views and sun.
The new kitchen is oriented towards the panoramic view of Rangitoto and the exterior wall of the family living area was pushed out to the edge of an existing eave above, complete with floor to ceiling double glazed sliding doors. A linear skylight was installed over the new adjacent scullery area, flooding the space with natural light. The kitchen and scullery feature carrara marble counter tops and backsplashes, complimented with American Oak cabinets. Off the new living area, Eagle & Franich constructed a new terracotta tiled deck with frameless cantilevered glass balustrade. For an unobstructed view the cantilevered glass support brackets were concealed in the deck floor framing.
