Space is very precious in this compact home built by Waller Projects, as are family heirlooms and keepsakes from many trips abroad.

Although the home has a very modern aesthetic, the clients wanted to bring with them the hints of the previous rustic bungalow that they dearly loved, therefore the kitchen and bathrooms have touches of country amongst all the modern elements, for example the kitchen form features clean lines and an ultra modern engineered stone benchtop by Silestone, whilst the planked veneer on the cabinetry holds true to their country style aesthetic.

The home faces north to make the most of the northern winter sun on the polished concrete floors and the oak & cedar open staircase leads to master bedroom with amazing views over the Manukau Harbour. The master bed sits up against a recycled timber head board supplied by the Kauri Warehouse.
