Geoff Newman Designed Masterpiece in Auckland Up for Sale
This stunning home is an elegant example of mid century New Zealand Architecture
Words and Photography by Dan Eagle
Designed in 1973 by Architect Geoff Newman this inspired home is a triumph of modern, easy living. It's designed around giant Kanuka, Karaka and Totora trees and features thoughtful spaces and beautiful materials. Matai floors, cedar doors and built in Rimu furniture all make this a very special home.
This stunning family home is available to purchase privately from the current owners. For all the details and additional history please follow this link
The family lounge is a generous, light filled living area with a thoughtful use of materials.
Another view of the lounge. Yes that is an authentic 1950's Eames ESU Storage unit hanging out with some very cool mid century friends including a Jon Jansen cloud table.
I bet a few wines have been enjoyed on this deck.
Light filled open spaces are the order of the day in the dining room.
Why not take a walk outside and reflect on how awesome it is inside.
The kitchen has been sympathetically renovated in keeping with the original design.
Mr Rabbit likes chilling out on top of his Kent Coffey 'Perspecta' chest of drawers.
Thoughtful placement of windows creates some great spaces to relax in.
If you're going to create your acoustic masterpiece it might as well be on a Takeshi Nii folding armchiar.
The awesome open plan fireplace inside needs feeding.
Take a walk down the garden path.
Clean lines and crisp detailing on the outside.
Looking good from down here as well.
Plenty of room for everyone.
Let's just sit here all day.
Shut the front door.
