The home business

When Brad and Amanda Richards, of Brad Richards Building, chanced upon an old red-brick home on the hills of Mt Pleasant, little did they know it was to be their next family home and a chance to showcase their building expertise.

Rock Solid

This spectacular hill site presented some tough challenges for Chris Fifield Building, but the dedicated team embraced the complex project to deliver a remarkable multi-award-winning home.

Seeing is believing

Abode's kitchen design expert, Nicky Claridge of NC Design, talks to us about the increasing demand for the warmth and beauty of timber in the kitchen. Thanks to some new products on the market, achieving this look has never been more accessible or more affordable.

Dare to be different

When Sharon Moore of interiors retailer Nextdore and partner Phil built on the hill above Westmorland, they couldn’t have hoped for a smoother ride with M.O. Brown Builders, providing them with a chance to showcase their outstanding style and flair for interiors.

Every last detail

Mark and Kate Tomkies of Tomkies Construction brought meticulous planning and attention to detail to every aspect of the ambitious project to build their own dream home. The result is a stunning, award-winning residence the family plans to enjoy for many years.

Outside in

Robert Weir of Weir Architecture’s design for this unique and striking coastal home was inspired by the beach-loving lifestyle of the owners and the challenging conditions of the dramatic location among the dunes of Waimairi Beach.
