Kashiwa House

Completed 2014

This new house is on a beautiful site looking out over the Tasman Bay on the outskirts of Nelson.

The house is composed of a long north facing wing to take advantage of the sun and views, and a wing running east west that creates a sheltered courtyard. A palate of timber, plywood and Waitaha stone are used in the house with extensive areas of glass.
