Port Levy House Update

Final designs have now been polished, we’re looking forward to getting planning approval and starting the build on this home situated on a rural block with views out to Port Levy Harbour.

Our client’s brief for a secluded rural cottage was simply to be off the grid and sustainable. From this we developed a design with a series of raised platforms, rooms and decks, perched above a wild unglazed meadow. Visual inspiration for the design has been taken from the farming vernacular, with repetitive roof forms also acknowledging the shape of the hillsides on both sides of the valley.

The modular structure lends itself to prefabrication, and with the land situated on a large rural block positioned between two ridges on Banks Peninsula, should make for ease of delivery.
