A dramatic sloping roof shelters a series of spaces that cascade down the length of this narrow site. The client’s request for an exemplary hillside home that maximises views of Wellington city and the distant harbour has resulted in an unobtrusive form that also maintains the views from neighbouring homes. A central circulation spine links the stepped north-facing living spaces and courtyards, while utility areas and snug spaces form a ribbon of use along the south side. The result is a light-filled family home with an amazing connection to the city.
