The Cray Shed Pauanui - 2002

This is a holiday home escape for two old friends and their adult children to enjoy. Located on the Pauanui Waterways, it caters for all water sports, with its own jetty, boat ramp, dive store, fish prep, smoker and outdoor cooking facilities.

The site had the challenge of facing the southerly winds to the south. A courtyard solution that allowed sun to penetrate the living space from behind was resolved upon.

The landscaping was intentionally kept as low maintenance, and we emphasised the wharf/jetty interface with the canal by the use of concrete terraces and wide steps, complete with spa and feature see through fire.

Having our property designed by Tony was a really wonderful experience – we were most impressed. He’s a pleasure to work with and is great at making sure he’s always available. And the house functions incredibly well. As a holiday home for two families, it’s exactly what we wanted.
