[Inara Trend Design] – Lin House: a smart, resilient home for the future
Combining the Kiwi way of laid-back living with Asian architectural influences, Lin House is a unique fusion home on a constrained site in Remuera, situated about ten minutes from Auckland’s central city. This modern, energy-efficient home has been future-proofed to adapt to change on every level, including super-smart technologies that can be managed from any device, and solar panels that power the lighting and heat the pool.
Adaptability and a sense of privacy and retreat were essential requirements in the design of Lin House, a 330m² home on a tight suburban site within a neighbourhood of ’60s houses. Constrained by close neighbours on either side and the sunny northern aspect facing the street, Daniel Marshall Architects was faced with the real challenge of creating a unique, functional and light-filled home for a young family.
At Lin House, light and landscape press into the interior through glazed walls and openings, creating a comfortable and restful place to occupy. Nestled into its site, it feels more like a courtyard house than a suburban home, with a series of modest outdoor spaces that echo the Asian-influenced architecture.
