A new start for a paddock in Te Puna with the planting of a new Kiwi Fruit orchard and the formation of a landscaped irrigation pond. This was also a new lifestyle choice by the clients to return to their farming roots.
The new ‘Black Barn’ provides an essential utility building for the orchard but also includes a studio with a double bedroom and bathroom. This provides accommodation away from their new townhouse, whilst they are attending to the kiwi fruit.
The clients wanted to create a similar feel to a French Provencal Barn with black timber cladding, white joinery and a pergola over a raised deck overlooking the pond and orchard.
