This beautiful architecturally designed house at Beachlands opens up to expansive sea views, inviting outdoor living areas and a pool.
When the client requested a casual style beach home with the use of Queenstown schist, Malcolm from Xsite Architects recommended Palliside as a cladding to complement the elegant schist for four main reasons:
- The cladding comes with a comprehensive guarantee
- Low maintenance
- Durability in the harsh coastal environment
- Cost effective
The high-end, four-bedroom family home was built by Bravo Ltd Builders, an established company with a proud history of residential construction in Auckland's eastern suburbs. Director Andy Parker says the home is all about lifestyle. Both areas open up to decks with overhead aluminium louvres providing shade. On the upper level, the master suite is also designed to maximise the view.
Low maintenance and the ability to withstand the coastal conditions were key considerations when it came to choosing materials for the exterior. In addition to the Queenstown schist and Traditional White Palliside, designer PVC gutters and downpipes from the Marley Stratus Design Series were also specified for the project, to add a high quality finishing touch.
