Carved into the rock, these two townhouses enjoy expansive vistas to Little Kaiteriteri beach and Kākā Island. Volumes step down the site nestling the houses into the hill. The lower level anchors the building into the site, housing the garages and entry. The two floors above step back creating various outdoor spaces with the living spaces on the top floor enjoying the views. Solid masonry walls provide a protective outer shell, and privacy from the neighbouring sites, while timber cladding brings a warmth and softness to the entry and outdoor spaces.
