The Kanuka house is inspired by the surrounding natural environment. A timber-focused material palette creates a harmonious connection between indoors and outdoors, and brings a natural, warm and textured element to the home.

Our clients were keen to maximise thermal efficiency and minimise environmental impact where possible. This was achieved through a process of careful planning during the design and detail phases, and a clear communication path with the contractor on site. Read about the results in our Journal.
