Seaview Road- Waiheke Island

The proposals were for a new two storey dwelling located at the western end of Onetangi Beach on the upper contours in amongst regenerating bush. The proposed works required the clearance of approximately 500m2 of existing Manuka/Kanuka and mitigation included larger specimen Pohutukawa, Rewarewa and Nikau palms. While not on the ridge the dwelling was elevated and for the most part clad in dark exterior finishes with a modulated built outline. Onetangi is one of Waiheke’s western villages and the proposal was well integrated with other residential development in an area of high amenity value.
