Belco Homes - Home of the Year 2017

We were very proud to have been involved in this project at the design stage. Congratulations to everyone at Belco Homes for this fantastic result and recognition of their high quality workmanship.

Designed to serve the needs of a family of four, this Tauranga home delivers all the space, peace and freedom a semi-rural life affords. The 266sqm layout shows thoughtful planning and consideration. Ample glazing offers sunny living spaces and ocean peeks.

The children’s lounge opens via a large sliding door to their outdoor swing and into the main entertaining area with cavity sliders. A soundproofed media room sits to one side. Four spacious bedrooms are fitted with built-in wardrobe and drawer systems, and enjoy northwesterly sun and views.

Effortless flow between interior rooms and alfresco living zones is optimised with stacking sliders on three walls of the open plan area. Outdoor spaces are integrated into the body and roofline of the lounge, offering respite from the elements.

Soundproofing, double glazing and upgraded insulation ensure a peaceful, comfortable home. Polished concrete floors provide an all-day heat sink. Pre-piped underfloor heating and provision for a heat-transfer system keep future upgrades in mind.

Testimonials

I just want to say to those of you who worked on our home - what a great place it has turned into. Just the feelings of space and style it gives. After a month here we have not found anything that we do not like, or anything that we think should have been different. The spaciousness is wonderful, the suitability to the site is fantastic. 

Simply, it is a great piece of design work which has brought only positive comment from all of our once-sceptical neighbours.

“Congratulations on a very good set of working drawings – the best I’ve seen for a long time.  Clear, well presented and concise.”
