Sitting neatly behind the main township of Waitangi on the rugged Chatham Islands on the road out to Owhenga is a plot of the land owned by the Preece family.

We have designed a home that is purpose built for the incredible winds and harsh marine context. Designing the home so it can be assembled and placed in a shipping container on the Auckland wharf and delivered safely to the Islands was one challenge.

Delivering a warm and nurtured home for the Preece family was the most important component.
