Alderton Park Residence
Alderton Park in Kerikeri is a beautiful residential subdivision nestled into the valley facing East toward the Kerikeri Inlet. The owners of this Lot approached us to design a home that would make the most of a tricky site, steep in contour with natural rock all around.
This home was designed to stand out from the crowd, to be eye-catching and bold. Most of the homes in Alderton Park carry a similar look and style, so the task was to set this home apart.
The decision was to use black, glass and timber. No more, no less. As seen in the pictures this home really is a box. But a funky box, designed for easy living considering the difficult site.
The ground floor is solely the garage, entry/lobby and stairwell. Upstairs is the living, dining, kitchen, three bedrooms, a bathroom, ensuite and separate toilet.
The use of a parapet roof allowed us to ‘hide’ a traditional mono-pitch roof behind the cladding, giving the home the box like form.
Newson Construction built the home, as usual to a high standard.
