Text description provided by the architects. An exciting rock-face / hillside home located in Scarborough, Christchurch. It is a modestly sized, relaxed, playful and environmentally conscious home on an extremely difficult hill site overlooking Sumner beach.

The house features a lightweight, sail-like roof supported on two tree-like timber and steel support structures and seemingly ‘floating’ above the space.
