Blake Residence | Diana Blake Design, Architect
Sitting long and low across the Whangamata harbour with a backdrop of dense pine forestry, this robust and strong home of precast concrete panels and blackened cedar is at one with the landscape.
Fundamental architectural principles of orientation, thermal mass and high level of insulation means this home operates at an efficient rate for its size, maintaining constant interior temperatures throughout the seasons.
