Elegant Beauty

Ohlson and Whitelaw Architects

Grand and inviting, this Pukekohe home makes the most of the wonderful rural views and is beautifully landscaped to create the perfect finish.

Our clients explored all of their builder options and did their homework before meeting us and viewing our work.

Their brief was a generous sized architectural home of 420sqm including four bedrooms, an office, three bathrooms and plenty of open plan living space.

The impressive design offers the best of indoor-outdoor living for everyday entertaining and lifestyle.   The wide open spaces fosters an easy sense of flow throughout the home, and with two lounge areas this is modern day living at its best. 

Three-metre high ceilings enhance the natural lighting, giving it a luxurious feeling throughout, with architectural joinery that extends to 4m in the living area for an even more expansive space.

The external cladding uses a Sto plaster system with long run roofing, and has a unique copper spouting giving it a superior finish, with the outside decking creating a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor areas.

The pièce de résistance is the sun-kissed swimming pool with a separate pool house, providing a luxurious yet practical addition.

For the colder months gas fires have been fitted both inside and out, with large stacker doors opening up to create the perfect alfresco dining space.

Our clients are not only impressed with our building and finishing skills, but also Craig’s management skills, attention to detail and ideas that have brought their vision to life.

Ohlson and Whitelaw are quality home builders and renovators based in Whitianga, New Zealand.

Building within modern environments for different lifestyles and stages, our structures are constructed purposefully and with integrity, so that they remain sound and solid for a lifetime’s enjoyment.
