"We want an oﬀ-grid single level family home atop a farm hill, with views from the living and master bedroom spaces to the Cook Straight and Marlborough sounds" - This was the short version of the brief when we met our client on a farm hill in Seddon.
This ‘L’ shape home wraps around a central pool with bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry spaces separated from the main living space & master bedroom suite where the owners will primarily spend their lives. Four spacious rooms were created for the overflow of family coming to stay, separated with a split level.
The dwelling is orientated on site to maximise the stunning views and sunlight, with plenty of kodak moments with sunrise and sunsets visible from the the living areas and bedrooms.
The home has been designed with solar and water collection, a modern wood fireplace provide ducted heating to the bedrooms and master-suite, as well as providing heating to the main living space. With large external walls and mechanical ventilation - this throughout the spaces, this home is designed for low energy use.

Modal helped us design the changes we wanted to make to our home. First time renovators, they were helpful with providing a clear service expectations. They took calls from our builders and provided updates - They even popped around to see the finished product recently too!

We're very happy with Modal's performance on our house extension project. They were very approachable and had some great ideas to offer. They really listened to us and delivered a design in a timely manner that was exactly what we wanted.
Modal provided excellent early engagement with us on a Wellington house renovation project. They communicated quickly and were very responsive, visiting and patiently talking us through the options and steps.
Modal helped us with a significant reconfiguration and extension of our holiday home on Waiheke Island. They were a delight to work with, carefully explaining the ins and outs of all stages of the process and provided ongoing support and design options as we moved through ideas. Modal put the experience of your project at the forefront of their minds, delivering a quality space for us to enjoy regularly.
Modal’s work, timing and communication is spot on. From concept to detailed design through to consent they kept me involved and informed. Modal kept ahead of schedule. I'm really happy with the designs and the additions they made. They managed the consent process which went smoothly and are a team of relaxed but very professional individuals.
Modal helped us with a redesign of our office space at Aro, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Modal through this process. They saw our vision right away, to help us enrich our existing space without taking away all the unique characteristics. They were meticulous in the design process and guided us through each step, from proof of concept to adding the finishing touches - inevitably being featured on WellingtonNZs coolest offices blog. I would highly recommend Modal for any project that requires a great deal of creativity, attention to detail, and initiative.
