A Mount Eden concrete villa in the south pacific has the same alien status as a charming Architect from Switzerland living high above Palm springs.
The floor plan of this villa is predictable.
There is a pool that bounces the suns rays inside and creates magic.
A brick façade streetscape to the garage and pool compliance is a nod to sincerity of such construction.
There is a sense of freedom to the area where food is prepared, cooked and served. Canadian cedar respectfully allows the penetration of the new into the old. Hibernian respect for books, knowledge and Tangata whenua is layered through the interior of the home with extreme care.
