Te Huia

Wood-Tech has been very fortunate to be involved from (before) the start with the Te Huia Twin Peaks project.

Set on a very special piece of land that sits above the beautiful Huia Bay on the West Coast of Auckland – Te Huia Twin Peaks is built of whole New Zealand-grown Douglas Fir logs - that were individually selected and pulled from the forest by draft-horses.

The “Post and Beam” design of the house is John’s kiwi-inspired innovation based on the original North American log homes, but stripped of the heavy log walls - opened up with lots of timber joinery and double glazed windows - to create light and open living areas.

When deciding on the kitchen materials, John and Sharon chose Western Red Cedar veneer for the doors and panels with Indian Black stone bench tops.

The addition of the black glass splash-back gives a dramatic affect that works well within the uniquely-styled timber home – and reflects the mature kauri forest through the window.

“The kitchen is the main centre that everyone gravitates towards…” John

“It is the centre of the house – the lay-out and size of the island works perfectly – I wouldn’t change a thing” Sharon

Wood-Tech would like to thank the Te Huia team for the enjoyable experience of being involved with the people, the place and the process.
