House Under Eaves – MRTN Architects

content-image-type

The custom copper and black Silhouette Wall Lights tie in with the copper details scattered throughout House Under Eaves. Located in a new subdivision less than an hour from Auckland, this new house designed by MRTN Architects was one of the first built on a flat split-up site on what once was pastoral land. Faced with a flat vacant lot with no neighbours the design strategy was to anticipate the soon to be context and also to create a sense of retreat from the street.

“We also wanted to respect the client’s privacy and provide a layered separation from front to back,” explain MRTN Architects. “We proposed the use of shadow as a design material, creating an oversized dark roof that rests on thick cedar clad walls.” The roof protects from the elements as heavy downpours are common. From the interior, the black eaves frame the landscape views and enhance the appearance of the surrounding greenery.
