Opito Bay House

See below a recently completed project on the hillside at Opitio Bay, near Kerikeri & the Bay of Islands. 

This home was a unique yet simple design created by the Arcline Team, of three interlinking pods, snugly sitting next to each other on the hillside. When in the home it doesn’t feel like its in a pod-like layout, whereas outside, and namely from the driveway entry, the home has a stunning feeling of three small gabled pavilions perched on the hillside. 

The entry to the home is between two pods, the pod on the left housing the three bedrooms in the home, the pod to the right the garage, second lounge and stairway to the attic storage space. Skylights give natural light to the attic spaceDirectly ahead in the hallway leads to the third pod, the space between the two front pods being used as the main bathroom. The third pod is the kitchen, dining and living, and has maximum glass to magnify the views directly in front of the home. 

Cedar cladding with a corrugate roofing keeps the home looking simple and attractive, living up to the saying – less is more. 

This is the perfect place to call home, something subtle yet quality, hidden yet open.
