Contemporary, easy living, resiliant

Nestled into the ridge of Bills Drive in Nelson, this warm contemporary home has commanding views of Tasman Bay from every room.

An earthquake faultline running across the front edge of the site and strong prevailing winds were our primary concerns because the home needed to be resilient to protect our clients while also open and light to take in the expansive views.

Our solution:
Our solution was to pull the mass of the home away from the faultline. The living, dining and kitchen make the most of the views and are as light as possible. To provide a protected outdoor area for entertaining, we positioned the master suite to shelter an internal courtyard which opened into the main living space and the rumpus room but maintained a visual connection to the views.

Decking off the kitchen and dining area helped obscure houses in the foreground to create a sense of complete privacy and seclusion.

It was a great experience to work with Bespoke Architecture. Vincent’s ideas when he saw the site were out of the box and ideal for the location, especially around views and wind protection. His team was easy to communicate with and fast to respond. They were open to include our ideas and preferences.

The plans were fantastic and made it easy for the builders to use on site. The team was available for questions and adjustments during the build process.

The flow and the feel of the house is amazing and as you walk through each area pulls you into the next in just the right way. The design has captured the beautiful views and made the absolute most of them. We felt valued and well supported as their clients. What we appreciated most was their professionalism which included communication and a wide range of knowledge. We continue to work with them and would highly recommend them.
