Family Home - Raglan

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

Leaving the city behind 2021-2022


A converted bus, a container and a barn - plus loads of open space - what more could you want? Answer - a High-Performance forever family home.


Our client will build this home himself - an early foray into High-Performance living and building with SIPs - pushing the envelope of what can economically be achieved with a clear architectural vision in mind.


This home combines two linked pavilions - 1 for living, cooking and coming together as a family in open plan, and 1 for working, sleeping and recreating. Consent and design documentation is currently underway with the aim of starting slab works on site late 2021.
