Anakie Long House (under construction)

Set on a large rural acreage amongst a backdrop of woodlands is an existing two storey attic style dwelling which can no longer sustain the needs of the family into the future. Respectful of the client’s brief for a large elongated and north facing living and kitchen space, the ‘longhouse’ extension was designed to provide an economic solution to incorporate direct visual interaction with the surrounding landscape and a large north facing glazed wall affording views of the hills beyond. The extension is to feature rammed earth external walls, standing seam roofing and thermally efficient double glazed windows and under slab hydronic heating. The project is due for completion in 2021
