Seatoun House 1
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This new house is located in the previous Army Fort Dorset area of Seatoun. The north sloping site is afforded all-day sun with views of Wellington’s harbour to the north. Low maintenance materials were selected to withstand the close proximity to the coastline and the effects of the sun for a very sheltered location from the harsh southerlies. Subdivision controls restricted the building height and floor area to achieve view shafts for adjacent properties.
The result is a very modern open plan, well appointed four bedroom house, with an internal lift and luxurious dressing room and ensuite to the main bedroom. High level windows provide bright sunlight to fill all central spaces creating interesting changes in space and light throughout the day and extends a very open sense of space.
