North Canterbury House
The North Canterbury House sympathetically sits in its natural environment and gives a natural presence of sophistication through simplicity. The rectilinear barn design is divided into three interconnecting wings, centred around the open plan living area with a feature glass gable. Warmth and light flow through the home, thanks to the use of natural materials and the vast sloping ceilings. Areas are made more intimate and relaxed through a darker interior pallet and the beautiful, unique timbers used throughout.
The build required a high level of attention to detail and accuracy with beautiful finishes such as the full-height vertical batten sliding screens on the building’s façade. They add flexibility, privacy and atmosphere. The home features a sleek, foldaway kitchen, polished concrete floor, wall panelling throughout and even hidden doors. The sophisticated design, slick use of natural materials, and constrained colour palette create a home that is warm and comfortable, yet minimalist and luxurious.
