Karepa Street House & Flat

Brooklyn, Wellington, NZ   


Large colourfully painted architectural home with sloped roof on steep hill side

On a stunning site overlooking the town belt and harbour, this project created two new houses. The north, east and west walls of the living spaces are extensively glazed to take advantage of sun and views. Prefabricated insulated panels on exposed glulam timber frames are used to create the main external structure, with the exception of the lower level bedroom block. The bedroom block is an earth-sheltered structure designed to reduce the visual impact of the building as well as create a usable grass roof area. The build was carried out by Planit Construction who did a great job on this complex project. Kerapa street House & Flat was featured in Home Magazine in 2017.
