After initially planning to use the rear house as a holiday home the clients decided to make Mt Maunganui their permanent home. The client’s brief was for a livable and relaxed beach house that made the most of the dramatic ocean views. Visually striking, the sharp charcoal exterior links the new building both to the original cottage and the newer holiday house behind.

Situated on a secluded site within the busy metropolis of Mt Maunganui, this holiday house is sheltered behind one of the last remaining cottages and pohutukawa trees along the beach. The house has a simple rectangular plan that is lifted out of the site to embrace natural light and to enhance views of the Pacific Ocean. The house has been positioned on site to form a sheltered outdoor living area that it shares with the original cottage.

Point Street House

View Point

Located in the coast township of Raglan, the site immediately slopes away from the road in a southerly direction, which generates views of the Raglan harbour, Rangitahi peninsula and Mt Karioi beyond. The site had an existing house that was raised above the ground on piles with an open single carport below accessed by a steep driveway. The habitable spaces in the house were located on the upper first level, divorced from the ground and any meaningful outdoor spaces. Modest windows with low head heights that truncated the apex of Mt Karioi beyond and limited outlook from the existing house.

Mere months after they moved in they engaged architect Evan Mayo to totally transform the comfortable - yet dated - home into a contemporary abode of renewed beauty.
