2020 Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Architecture Awards Winner
The work of Guy Natusch and John Scott was a starting point for this thoughtfully designed home, which is the product of years of dreaming and planning by its owners. Another influence is biophilic design principles. Built to ensure the wellness of its inhabitants for years to come, the dual-wing house facilitates generous connections to its surrounding environment; it was constructed using non-toxic building materials and a variety of sustainable strategies to ensure it sits lightly on the land. Its honesty, directness and considered scale gives the Turley House a quiet presence and humble elegance appropriate to those who inspired it, and a credit to those who conceived, designed and built it.
