House 5

5A Darwin Lane, Remuera

This contemporary family home enjoys an elevated position in a private street overlooking Orakei Basin.

Designed by Shanahan Architects, the striking tilt-slab concrete and zinc home nestles into north-facing slopes with all-day sun streaming in through floor to ceiling windows. All four levels of the 592m2 ultra-modern home are connected by a circular glass staircase. There are a variety of entertainment areas including large open space living areas, a media room, generous wine cellar and an infinity pool off the main living area. The sheltered rear courtyard, designed by Ted Smyth, contains a series of striking stainless steel plant pots.

This home features artists Catherine Dunn, Ilya Volykhine, John Mullholland, Justin Boroughs, Michael Hawkins ’95, Rebecca Tune and Sheyne Tuffery.
