Craggy Range, Hawkes Bay

Patrick assisted Andy Coltart with this proposed lifestyle development to open up some sections in plantation forest block.  The design intent was to go for a low key, relaxed and authentic rural appeal.  The elevation allows for dramatic views and framed vistas.  The plan included to generate a generous, bold approach using large scale recycled, rustic timber.  Pockets of pine trees were cleared for building platforms and views opened up by thinning in selected areas.  The planting of upright deciduous trees reinforced vertical form and provide seasonal contrast.
