This is a proposal to renovate an existing three-bedroom house in the older part of Howick, with elevated views towards Beachlands, Rangitoto and Waiheke.

Sketch-Drive-26GlenfernIt’s designed as a “three-zoned house,” with parents’ realm upstairs and downstairs at the end with the view, children’s realm at the  afternoon/garden end of the house, and the shared realm in between.

The new spaces proposed for the house push the existing house out to views, to decks, to light and sun and gardens. The aim is an easy, informal, three-level family home within which the occupants may find adventure and delight—a house that is an extension of themselves — connecting them to each other, to their grounds, and to the world beyond.
