As featured on Grand Designs NZ, 10 Oct 2018! Nestled harbourside in Mangawhai, Wāpu Gables / the Jetty House is a stunning new home that whispers of a unique and proud New Zealand heritage.
Modelled on a contemporary boatshed theme, the client brief called for sensitive architecture that would blend into its coastal environment, along with a distinct industrial theme. Architecturally designed by Frank Stanton of Dream Planning Ltd, the three-bedroom home appears as four simple pavilions, however on close inspection, each one contains several complex interior and exterior steel structures - designed to support the extensive use of recycled and unique materials. Exposed steel beams and framing were crucial in a structural sense, but also sit perfectly with the industrial theme.
Our team was contracted to Fabricate, supply, and install of structural steel package for this stunning build, and the results are truly spectacular.
