Situated on an exposed site overlooking Manawatū’s Foxton Beach, this energy efficient 2.5 bedroom eHaus Pacific captures - and creates - stunning views from every angle.
From the Tararua Ranges and Manawatū River mouth to the small serene settlement of Foxton Beach, this hilltop home offers complete respite from the sand, wind and relentless summer sunshine. The moment you step inside, everything falls silent and still. One of the welcomed differences building an eHaus brings.
Clad in vertical cedar and Colorsteel on the outside, and a combination of white-washed plywood ceilings and polished concrete floors on the inside, the material choices form a minimalist backdrop ideal for modern living.
Aesthetic cues were lifted from Scandinavian and Japanese architecture - note the custom Shoji door, negative detailing, and mezzanine floor - while practical elements such as window placement and compact, built-in seating were factored into the design to maximise efficiency and comfort.
This award winning project was designed by Marty Horn from MH Architecture.
We believe that our homes should have a big impact on the way we live, but little impact on the land. We've calculated the amount of carbon our homes have saved through energy efficiency from move in day 'til now. At their core, eHaus' are built with the elimination of carbon emissions in mind - so we're not only creating healthy, comfy & high performing homes, but spaces that don't cost the earth.
