Whangaparoa Residence, Hibiscus Coast

Completed: Jun 2011
Architect: Self Design
Engineer: c/o Project Economics

With panoramic ocean views sweeping across the horizon this Whangaparoa hilltop home is a man's dream-home transformed into reality.

Monarc precast panels provide the 2 story structure and the functionally dynamic facade of the house. Upper panels of Caviar 0810 black concrete absorb the sun's energy accentuated with refined vertical Monarc Cut detailing while lower level Oyster 0010 panels and the 300x300mm columns reduce reflection at ground level and poolside with a Monarc Diamond Hammered texture.
