In tune with its setting: Boutique Architecture

Located close to the Rakaia River, this new build stands proudly on the highest point on the site, meaning it will weather any storm.

The latest build for Christchurch-based Boutique Architecture, the house has been designed to be bright and airy where it matters, and rugged enough to withstand the elements.

Behind its brutalist exterior lies an open, vibrant interior world. Extra high 3.6m ceilings soar above the main living area, and are further accentuated by a sunken lounge.

“We absolutely love this feature, and it was a non-negotiable from our clients,” explains company director Alan Mayne. He adds that the strategy of a thin building footprint, with floor to ceiling windows to both sides, allows for cross ventilation and natural light to help the house breathe.

“Large pre-cast concrete panels have been used to anchor and ground the building to its open two hectare site,” he says, explaining that this material was selected for its durability and relationship to its rocky riverbed environment.

Feng Shui and symmetry were big design considerations for the four bedroom, 320m square home. Each bedroom has its own ensuite with each bed carefully placed to capture views and follow Feng Shui principles.

Another special feature is a brewing room/bar incorporated for the home brewer home owner. The glass fronted access offers a teasing glimpse of copper and stainless steel distillation equipment. For ease of access. entry to the covered outdoor living also connects the main living area and the bar.
