This new build project was always going to be a challenge for the team at Smith & Sons Port Hills, with the steep hill site and difficult access, there was flooding, earthquakes and restricted access for trucks arriving. However the results are superb - this unique property is 100% custom designed and is built out from the hillside capturing even more sun and expansive views of Lyttelton Harbour.
This home is a testament to exceptional design and a love of Lyttelton. It has a tiny footprint and only 2 bedrooms at 66 square metres. As an eco friendly home where possible it was built with secondhand reclaimed materials and untreated natural timber. A heat pump powers underfloor heating and the home is double glazed.
This home featured in the coffee table book 'Rebuilt' and Your Home and Garden.
