Kiddle House Alteration

Havelock North

The retro/pasifika feel of the house was further enhanced with vibrant colours from the Resene Style Pasifika palette.

Lounge

This project involved a major alteration to an existing house built in the 1940s and located in Havelock North. Plans that were completed in 1989 formed the basis for this alteration, but were altered due to changes in the way the clients lived, availability of building materials and changes in building law.

The roofline of the master bedroom upstairs was continued out over the lounge to create a double height space with Polynesian inspired macrocarpa trusses overhead and one wall lined with diagonal macrocarpa boards. The retro/pasifika feel of the house was further enhanced with vibrant colours from the Resene Style Pasifika palette, used on the bracing panels. All other walls are lined with Okoume plywood finished in Resene Aquaclear clear waterborne urethane.

Window Seat / Kitchen

A large braced wall in the lounge was painted in the neutral, Resene Style Pasifika Pink Night, to keep the space both warm and peaceful. Deep purple, Resene Style Pasifika Coconut Crab, in the window seat, helps to define this as another space and also complements the greenery outside.

Bright Resene Style Pasifika Red Frangipani and Resene Style Pasifika Orange Wood were used in the kitchen and dining as these are areas for moving, eating and chatting and needed bold, lively colours.

For the hallway/study area, Resene Style Pasifika Dark Sun was used to brighten up this cooler part of the house. Upstairs in the north facing master bedroom cool blues, Resene Style Pasifika Lagoon Spray and Resene Style Pasifika Lagoon Blue, were chosen to counteract the warm temperature of the room. The ensuite provides an oasis from the strong colours and timber, painted in Resene White.
