Sunshine Bay awards - SpiceBuild

Designed by Foundation Architects, this new 3 bedroom home was cleverly engineered to anchor to the existing rock face while seamlessly float above a section of steep natural ground.

Large full height glazing runs continuously across the building façade to maximise views out to Wellington Harbour.

This home is a great example of what can be achieved on a sloping site with minimal earthworks.

This home was awarded a Gold at the 2016 Master Build House of the Year competition

Nestled among native trees on a steep coastal site in Eastbourne, Wellington, this three-bedroom, architecturally designed home is built to stand up to the elements.

Cantilevered Structure

Extensive engineering was incorporated into this design to allow for a floating cross laminated flooring system. The system provided a bracing diaphragm, designed to float over a minimal steel post.


Master bedroom with sea views that look directly to Matiu / Somes Island in the Wellington Harbour. Large full height glazing on façade capture all available light with large sliding door set providing access to a private deck space.


This architectualy designed home was designed purely with lifestyle in mind. The close proximity to the beach and amazing harbour views have been enhanced with full height glazing that really makes this home special.
