The Concept

The clean simple design of
The Cantabrian concept home offers ideas for flexible living options to suit a variety of family sizes and make-up. The design is a contemporary take on the New Zealand bungalow, with a low-pitched gable roof, large north-facing feature windows placed for light, warmth and views, and a light-well reminiscent of the traditional chimney.

Light is an important feature of the Cantabrian philosophy. The straightforward design of this concept home includes elevated ceilings in the living areas making the spaces light and airy, spilling in through the carefully placed windows including the ranch slider to the garden, the quiet window-seat in the living room, and the tall light-well. 

Well thought-out interior spaces are readily adapted to inspire the needs of those living in it.



The light-well is double-glazed and the electric-opening high window provides ventilation in summer as well as a beautiful view of the sky.

This home has been designed to be comfortable and relaxing to live in. Well thought-out interior spaces are readily adapted to suit the changing needs of those living in it, such as a variety of bedroom layouts. If more space is needed later on, a Cantabrian Cottage can readily be added to accommodate a growing or extended family, or home business.
