This clifftop home by John Ross Architectural Builders embraces the elevated outlook over the water and surrounding scenery.
The exterior, in Abodo Vulcan Charred Cladding, not only provides a remarkable first impression and hard to beat street appeal, but also ensures there is no need to worry about regular ongoing maintenance.
The charred cladding has been used both vertically and horizontally, creating a point of difference beyond the beautiful dark black ‘crocodile skin’-like finish of the timber.
Charred timber, also known as Shou Sugi Ban, will outlast traditional black wood finishes. Which will stand this home in good stead, with Christchurch's hot summers and the property’s coastal location in mind.
When viewed from the large open plan living area, the dark timber cladding also provides a lovely contrast to the lighter deck and soffits/eaves - inviting the homeowners to enjoy the oversized deck - a place to admire the sensational seascape while basking in the last of the day's sun.
