Coastal Banks Peninsula House

Abodo as Timber suppliers

Nestled in coastal Banks Peninsula, this cosy home overlooks the picturesque seas of Wainui Bay in New Zealand’s South Island.

Carefully crafted by the team at Casa Construction this home is clad in Vulcan Cladding with Sioo:x finish.

Vulcan is an excellent choice for coastal regions, it’s stability and exceptional weathering characteristics combined with the accelerated “pre-weathered look” of Sioo:x finish means beauty for years to come.

An outdoor shower clad in Vulcan adds another dimension to the home, and makes an ocean swim more inviting.

Banks Peninsula House

Lume Design as Designers

Located on a quiet hillside, overlooking Banks Peninsula and the Akaroa Harbour, this holiday home expresses the owners love of land and sea. Having worked with these clients before on their city home, we were well attuned to their design aesthetic and things that were important to them.

 

The clients have a passion for design, they wanted nothing overtly coastal or typically Scandinavian, but with aspects of each genre - an aesthetic that engaged as much with the water as it did with the land.

 

The interiors needed to beautiful but not precious, robust enough to withstand children, dogs and sand from the beach.

 

The level of design detail throughout the home is evident. Deliberately pared-back, the minimal furnishings include curated objects and sculptural statements to lift the home from a typical “kiwi bach”.

 

There is an emphasis on detail, but not on dissolving the practical: black wall sockets and plugs, and black-steel bracketing on the trusses are a visible, deliberate act.

 

The black is then continued through into the bathrooms where black plumbing fixtures and fittings are used.  The bathrooms are deliberately dark and moody to contrast with the rest of the home, these are intentionally compact spaces as priority was given to the living/public areas within the home, vertical towel rods are space savers, their parallel bars set against the geometry of a trio of rectangles in the mirror cabinet, wall hung vanity and a shelving cube.”

 

Though effortless in appearance, the interiors are a result of a complex approach where each element of the design plays a vital role, while at the same time celebrating the architecture and liveability of each space.

  

In the kitchen a delicate yin-yang balance is achieved, with white finger tiles and V-groove cabinetry punctuated by black sockets and pull handles. Up-lights in the characteristic trusses wash the ceiling with a gentle glow at night, to complete this picture of intimacy and ease. 

 

The oversized “Dome36 Scraplight” pendant from Graypants at nearly 1000mm diameter is a bold statement above the dining table but is appropriately scaled within the generous volume of the primary living space.  

 

Deliberately minimal furnishings are robust enough to withstand families on holidays. 

 

The owners eschewed a TV in the living room leaving the picture window and fireplace as focal points.  Grouped into an intimate setting around a rattan coffee table is a modular Matteo Sofa by David Shaw and a black leather sling chair. The Sherpa rug ‘grounds’ the setting and adds a textural element.

 

All bedrooms have a restful palette of washed grey and charcoal that subtly reflects the coastal location.

 

This is an enchanting home where family and friends gather to relax and be together, a place where memories are made and traditions are forged.
