The Nelson House is situated on a rise overlooking Kapiti Island and the coastal residences of Waikanae Beach. The clients brief was for a house that was quintessentially ‘Kiwi’ in its’ aesthetic and materiality. With a love of timber weatherboards, plywood and concrete, it became important to include these materials in the house in an honest and integral way. Due to the sloping nature of the site and the need to have a division between the owners’ day-to-day living spaces and guest accommodation, the plan required a split from the start – whether horizontal or vertical in nature.Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureSave this picture!Plan 0Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureSave this picture!Plan -1The concrete spine wall serves as a divider between the two distinct building forms (one clad in weatherboard, the other ‘service’ area clad in plywood) and also a heat-sink for the fire, maintaining a uniform heat during the colder winter months. The dual roof forms collide over the dining/gallery area with a clear intersection of the two highlighted over the central fireplace.Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureSave this picture!DetailTimber has been used in its’ natural form throughout, with natural stains to allow the texture and grain of the wood to gleam through.Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: RFP Schematic Design for the Redevelopment of the Amethyst LotCall for SubmissionsKCAP & Kunst + Herbert Win Competition for “Garden City of the 21st Century” in HamburgArchitecture News Share Nelson House / a.k.a Architecture Year:  ArchDaily Architects: a.k.a Architecture Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  Nic Nelson Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Nelson House / a.k.a ArchitectureSave this projectSaveNelson House / a.k.a Architecture CopyHouses•Kapiti Coast District, New Zealandcenter_img 2014 Save this picture!Courtesy of a.k.a Architecture+ 32 Share CopyAbout this officea.k.a ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKapiti Coast DistrictNew ZealandPublished on September 30, 2016Cite: “Nelson House / a.k.a Architecture ” 30 Sep 2016.
