When Case Ornsby of Case Ornsby Architecture, returned to Christchurch a silent cheer echoed through our inner suburbs and now we see much more of his striking work emerging. While in Sydney he took various commissions including this ingenious design for his father. His distinctive pavilions are used to great effect on this freehold site.

A single level box faces the street housing garaging and utilities, and is positioned to create a sun and light filled courtyard in front of the main pavilion. The garage is a stylish ‘buffer’, an attractive entrance, providing privacy from the road. Clad in durable and light weight Western Red Cedar with a copper roof, the house is an eye-catching silhouette against the backdrop of the Port Hills. Inside this is a perfect retreat for inner city dwellers and could suit a diversity of buyers. There is room for a small family and excellent school zones could be a magnet, but professional couples and those wishing to downsize from a bigger home will find plenty of appeal here. Shiny polished concrete floors are heated in-slab. A ‘Trends’ kitchen gleams in white and pale timber and opens to an outdoor breakfast area to the east. There is a separate smaller living area which could be an ideal work from home space, and clever storage throughout.

The location here is constantly in demand and this chic house will be sure to entice. We urge your viewing by private appointment. You will not be disappointed.
