Waiatarua Residence

This house was to be designed on a challenging, steep site in a bush clad creek gully of Remuera. Built over multiple levels with areas of high retaining, the suspended upper floors were supported on limited blockwork walls and steel structure. Blueprint were able to support the vision of the Architect (Hamish Monk from Monk Mackenzie Architects) to "insert a bold intervention into a sensitive bush reserve whilst still maintaining a sense of modesty and poetic", to which the photos show was achieved.

The 3D modelling by Blueprint was able to clearly portray the complexity of the site and give clarity of the foundation structures to the building Contractor.
