Modern house, designed for young family. How would you like that? Daniel Marshall Architects have done a marvelous work accomplishing that very factor, with this 9 Elmstone House in Auckland city, New Zealand.
Daniel Marshall Architects, explains :
A suburban context – the site splays out from the end of a quiet Auckland cul-de-sac and slopes steeply away towards the North.
The brief was to provide a family home for a young family. It was important to maintain open ground for the boys to play on and to allow for a vegetable garden. The house was to be as economic as possible considering it’s 400m2 floor area.
The architectural strategy that developed was to arrange house volumes as densely as possible in such a configuration, which dealt with the steep site, and to ensure that ample ground was left in play for the boys. Spaces are arranged vertically over three levels, each with its own distinct outlook toward the garden and pool. The primary form is en- closed beneath a single sloped roof, which allows variation of floor and ceiling levels to individualise the spatial experience throughout the home.
Industrial materiality; precast concrete walls and simple concrete floors, play against the sophisticated yet subtle detailing of more traditional residential finishes. The placement of concrete elements within the home contributes to a thermal mass to absorb the heat from plentiful northern and eastern sun to regulate internal temperature of the house.
Contemporary style in a whole, open ground and highly economic. Check the 25 photos in the gallery to look deeper.

The living and main party area is crowned with a one-of-a-kind mirrored ceiling made of triangular shaped mirrors each separated by ceiling beams reflecting the lighting effects of the unit and the neon shining through the windows from the Las Vegas strip outside.
