Litecrete and Timber Cladding Enhance Contemporary Farmhouse

Designed by registered architect, Cate Creemers, this rural family home is located on a 50-acre site in south-east Auckland. It is comprised of three gable-roofed pavilions which are accessed by a flat-roofed link space which provides for circulation and services, but also acts as a photo, art and motorbike gallery.

Approach and entry are via the south. The house unfolds from the link to reveal three separate pavilions. The pavilions are distinct in both their outlook and use. The east pavilion accommodates the children and guest bedrooms and overlooks the valley. The living wing, oriented due north to maximise solar gain, houses the kitchen, games room and living room with sunken lounge. The east wing which overlooks a secluded valley and the pool complex, includes the home office and master bedroom.

The stark finish of Litecrete precast concrete is juxtaposed with warm external and internal vertical timber cladding. Litecrete at 220mm thick complies with the Building Code insulation requirements so that both faces of the panel can be exposed. The home was designed to accommodate the family now and in the future.

Based in Clevedon, Cate Creemers says her aim is "to create beautiful spaces and environments that inspire and enhance the lives of those who use and live in them". She works on a limited number of projects at any one time and focuses largely on residential projects, including both new build and alterations.
