Kuratau House

Kuratau, Waikato, NZ


Gable roof form elegant modern home with dark coloured metal cladding and light coloured metal roof

Purchased as an incomplete and mostly empty shell, this project looks to make the most of the simple existing form and volume within. The main double height space is broken up with fabricated trussing and a mezzanine level bridge which connects bedrooms at either end of the house. Macrocarpa shiplap sarking and the timber trussing add a warm tone to the overall volume and contrast with the black metal corrugate exterior.
