Redcliffs House adorns a steep site with its undeniably beautiful modern architecture. Designed by MAP Architects, this wonderful home overlooking the beach is prepared to offer a comfortable lifestyle background for its inhabitant. Located in the Port Hills above Redcliffs, the house shelters a wonderful collection of spaces showcasing a contemporary design, further beautified by the owner’s collection of original art pieces.
Living spaces float over the pool area below, composing a shaded portion underneath. Access is made via a carport on the higher level, with the front entrance defined by a lavastone clad blade wall. Behind this wall, a gallery space leads to the living space, connected to the dining and kitchen and capturing views of the estuary beneath. The whole house is protected from easterly wind, facing away while offering sheltered spaces for the owner and visitors to enjoy. Corten panels shape a unique, low maintenance option for the house’s facade, while the concrete base anchors the residential structure into the sloping site. Glass and aluminum join wooden decks in a successful effort of completing the modern look of this carefully designed residence.
