FIRTH SHOWHOME
Location: MT. TAYLOR DR | GLENDOWIE
Completed: 2000

Koia Architects were engaged by Firth to design an urban farmhouse, incorporating hotblock walls, concrete ground floor and first floors and a concrete kitchen top.

The floor is sprinkled with lime chips, honed, stained and sealed to create an easy care terraso type finish.

Underfloor heating and well placed glazing means this warms the whole house without creating cold spots.

Careful detailing throughout means the references are always made to its european origins but modernised with a New Zealand flavour. Landscaping and waterfeatures were all designed by Koia Architects to create courtyards, outdoor eating and lawn areas to suit the needs of a family home.
