Residential Property mitigating challenges of dense native bush and the existing stream.
Allco’s Volclay Range
Located on scenic Waiheke Island, this phenomenal project was designed by Daniel Marshall Architects. The house was built alongside the ridge-line in parallel to the coast, stepping down in a total of 4 levels with the swimming pool under the main pavilion; parallel to the stream.
Named Mahuika House after the Māori Goddess of Fire following an accidental fire that tore through the house, destroying the two upper pavilions but leaving the lower concrete pavilions almost undamaged just weeks before completion. The house was rebuilt and completed in February 2021.
This gorgeous project exemplifies sustainable construction and can be entirely self-sufficient, with its own sewage treatment and a large solar system to provide power.
