House Under Eaves designed by MRTN Architects stands less than an hour from Auckland in a new subdivision filled with family homes and trees. Sleek and stylish contemporary house hides its residents from prying eyes, while its medium height fence surrounds the property from all sides.
Grey wood siding contrasts with darker cladding and roof and black steel window frames. The latter cut through the structure to provide enough natural light and views for comfortable modern living.
House’s facade seems to consist of a few supporting walls that protrude and partially disguise the numerous windows. At the back, there is a glass backyard entrance and just a couple of gaps.
Gravel mixed with putting green surrounds the property. Wooden planters are keeping weeds contained but also at the level with the windows.
The house interior features lots of wood as well. White plastered walls balance it out, creating a more modern look. Tiles in the bath and kitchen add a different interesting element to the interior. Numerous seats take advantage of huge square windows. There is one in each room, it seems. Although the overall decor seems pretty minimal, wood texture and natural lighting do a great job giving it plenty of detail.
