Hawkes Bay – Greenmeadows

eHaus Pacific - Verified

This striking house design was created by D Ross Brown of Rosso Architects who is a friend of family. The concept was then given the eHaus magic and converted into a consented design by one of the designHaus team Vlada Acimovic. The raking roof line continues over the northern facing aspect to provide significant shading, weather protection and a natural  link to the garden. With low maintenance materials and generous internal spaces this home has been designed to deliver simple stress free living for the owners to enjoy.
