This contemporary home sits in the heart of Feilding, balancing a striking aesthetic with seamless integration into the urban fabric of the town. The home maintains its connection to the street by avoiding high solid fencing at the road boundary and through glazing placed along its main circulation spine.
The form and scale of the two-storey build sits subtly on the site, without overpowering its neighbours. The plainness of the plaster is offset by cedar, which adds warmth and variation to the façade. The built envelope borrows inspiration from passive house design principles through airtight construction, super insulation, thermally broken window joinery and a mechanical ventilation recovery unit.
