Northlake Home

WANZ Finalist 2017 - RESIDENTIAL $0 - $25,000

In early 2016 circumstances presented the chance to form a relationship with local Wanaka triathlete Nicky Samuels. After reading into her back-ground Design Windows Central Otago saw this as a great opportunity to support a local sportsperson by getting on board with sponsorship and assisting with her new build.

The perfect home for Nicky, who is expecting her first child, includes Metro Thermal Heart with Metro Glass’ Low E and Argon Gas double glazing, ticking the boxes for insulation and comfort. The use of powder-coated Metro Coal Dust aluminium windows and doors compliment the richness of the cedar cladding and top off the look of this little house which sits strikingly at the entry to Northlake subdivision in Wanaka. The Altherm windows and doors will be a focal point in Nicky’s home and keep the family cosy as they approach their first winter there.

The real feature of this dream home is the double glazed aluminium sliding doors in the main living area. At 10 metres in width and 2.6 metres high these stacker sliding doors with flush sill make a real statement. These sliding doors certainly make the living area, with the low profile finish they bring the deck and living area together effortlessly and opening wide on a hot summer’s day create a large area to be enjoyed by all. The floor to ceiling doors let in extra light and the cedar on the outside of the house can be seen tying everything together nicely.

Throughout the house all the windows and doors are great quality and look amazing with the black aluminium finish. Other features include the bathroom windows being clear rather than frosted to let more light in. Also the floor to ceiling windows in the lounge and bedrooms make the rooms feel even bigger.
