Efficient Building Starts With Considered Design

While many people never realise their dream of building a new home, Auckland Architectural Designer Richard Furze turned his dream into an affordable reality by rethinking the idea of what ‘home’ meant for him and his family. He introduced a new element into the efficiency equation: building with lifestyle in mind.

Richard's design reflected his desire to achieve balance between work and play, and the new home needed to support the lifestyle he and his family enjoyed, while minimising the time spent on maintaining it.

Having lived in the original ex-state brick and tile home for some time, Richard and his wife had an intimate appreciation of its pros and cons. In taking the bold move to rebuild on the same site, they used modern versions of exterior materials similar to those available when the original 1940’s house was built.

With long term durability and maintenance in mind, Richard selected a mixed palette of concrete block, brick and Palliside uPVC weatherboards. New Zealand made Palliside delivered several benefits during the construction phase. Being supplied in a double board profile meant quicker installation and reduced labour costs, while its pre-finished nature meant there was no painting required.

With a solid uPVC cellular foam core and a tough, co-extruded uPVC outer layer, Palliside has the long term benefit of never needing painting which will enable Richard and his family to spend more time enjoying their leisure time and less on house maintenance for many, many years to come.
