Our clients purchased Lot 1 of a new subdivision in the hills above Wellington Harbour in early 2015. On the recommendation of the site developer, they got a concept and quote from a design and build company affiliated with the subdivision. Unfortunately, the design didn’t seem to compliment the land or maximise the views and sunlight. Most importantly it lacked reflection of their personality and in their view, would have just blended in as another spec-built house.
They approached Vorstermans to get an alternative design. At the first site meeting, Rob produced a hand-drawn sketch which they loved, at that point, they knew their relatively small budget wouldn’t exclude them from great design
After moving in our clients realised how critical it was placing the house at the top of the site. If they had gone with the original concept from the design and build company which set it much lower, the views would have been seriously compromised as other houses popped up in front of them. Nestled seamlessly on the site with thoughtful placement of the windows maximizing sunlight, the completed design reflects the client’s vibrant personalities
