Paeroa House | Diana Blake Design, Architect



This sprawling single-level house stretches along a gently sloping hillside overlooking Paeroa’s rural landscape. The folded-tray roofline follows the lay of the land giving the house its long, low profile.

A warm natural cedar exterior contrasts with the recycled brickwork, both materials continuing through to the interior, blurring the line between inside and out.

Large retracting glass panels slide back, for effortless indoor-outdoor flow, to an infinity-edge pool, further linking with the views beyond.
