Sisters Sanctuary

Diving into the complex role of both client and designer, Georgia Peacocke has emerged on behalf of her sisters to design a sanctuary, nestled into the Rangitahi Peninsula. This site required careful integration with the social dynamic of a developing street on the western side, while the east of the house overlooks a picturesque tidal inlet, through a natural screen of kanuka. This modestly sized home combines rich walnut tones with soft sandy greys, to create a sense of calm and intimacy. Natural materials with inherent roughness and variation were chosen to resonate with textures found in the coastal landscape.

Horizontal stacking of timber elements adds  lightness to the grounded masonry, while gentle tones and textures inside play with the changing shadows of morning and afternoon light. This family home was a canvas for Georgia to express her proficiency for beautiful detail, and the realisation of her ambitions as a designer.
