Re-visit some of our favourite homes from the last 40 issues of UNO magazine
^ Virtually every element of this beachfront home was custom made. The brief? A beach house with surprises. There are large entertaining spaces and private contemplative spaces in this very large family home.
^ This dramatic home sits on the hillside below Te Mata Peak over looking the Hawke’s Bay. The disciplined grid design mimics the parallel lines of the surrounding grapevines.
^ Perched on a slope in Welcome Bay, this industrial style home rises above the ground and cantilevers out on beams. It looks like it’s floating over the land.
^ Extensive interviewing and planning ensured the owners had a home which will never need to change.
^ Will Tatton says that his job is a blend of many things: art, psychology and business. “I delve back into dreams and ideas, unpack them, and bring them back to life in a home.”
^ This bach is nestled into 100-year-old pohutukawas on a hillside, looking out to the ocean at Ōhope. The brief was to recreate the feeling of the old bach which stood in its place: not in design or layout, but in its relationship with setting and the way the family used the home.
^ This private oasis was conceived as a cluster of differing scaled pods that allow the landscape to ebb and flow around them.
^ Inspiration is taken from the Californian Sea Ranch, and a desire for the dwelling to resemble a series of sheds, with columns like tent poles extending at either end.
^ The main living areas in this Tauriko home boast a four-metre stud height, expansive polished concrete floors and customised stainless steel fittings.
^ The owners needed a home they could work and live in, and one that reflected both the ocean and the industrial nature of the nearby Port of Tauranga.
