There are many modern homes being created each day but then there are some special dream houses that fulfill the deepest wishes of the owner. This Secret House is one of those special residential projects that was constructed in a densely populated area but benefits from a fantastic natural light exposure due to its amazing architecture. Almost transparent and gathering views from multiple vantage points the Secret House also features all kinds of hidden and exposed areas that complete the overall design.
Its location on a sloped terrain in Wellington New Zealand makes the chosen design lines stand out even more. Having been lived in by the Government Architect John Campbell in the early 1900’s the house was revamped todisplay a contemporary style and offer the inhabitants a perfect place to call home.
The external walls are insulated using panels made of reinforced concrete to provide quake resistance and comfort. The distinct entrance to the house exhibits a distinguished appearance to the street.
The first floor consists of the children’s room whereas the second floor houses compact individual rooms for the client’s parents a bathroom and a dressing area. The third floor boasts big-sized family rooms along with some unique features including a great stairwell and skylight.
A part of the courtyard is decked with a lawn and the remaining portion with black gravel. The view of the house in white tint against the greenery is luscious. Long glass windows extending from the roof to the floor add to the elegance and allow a clear vision of the outdoor scenery.
