Taranaki Oakura eHaus Pacific


This single level home nestles into the rolling hills in Oakura and presents the owners with a lifetime  of stunning sea views, naturally beautiful surrounds of lush native planting and an extraordinary back drop of the Kaitake Ranges. Designed and built to provide a combination of a family home with an accommodation wing that caters for returning family and guests. A feature that demonstrates the flexibility of material choices when working with eHaus is the beautiful river stone wall that greats you on arrival.

Extraordinary heat energy savings.

Every one of our projects are energy modelled using the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). It's through this powerfully clever tool that we can accurately calculate just how much heat energy every eHaus will save when compared to a similarly- sized typical new home, built in the same climate region.

This project is making significant carbon savings for a better environment.

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.
