A private escape on Rintoul

Project name

Rintoul Retreat


New Build


Rintoul Street, Berhampore

The client

Southcoast Construction Wellington

In collaboration with Spacecraft Architects, Southcoast Construction built this new residential home in the iconic streets of Berhampore. The building site was a 160 section, nestled amidst existing homes and greenery.



Inner city retreat

While the Berhampore area is sought-after for its convenient location and nostalgic character, it is prone to icy southerly gales. That's why the top priority for this project was to capture the sun and provide a private oasis from the unruly Wellington winds.

The design of this contemporary family home was carefully crafted with a spacious living area, ample natural light, and an enclosed courtyard. With a strict budget and small section, the team were asked to incorporate natural ventilation, north and west-facing windows, and seamless indoor-outdoor flow. 

Requiring 8 high-quality window and door units, Southcoast Construction reached out to UNO Windows & Doors.

Secluded and sunny

In order to complement the timber cladding and minimal interior of the house, UNO was asked to manufacture 8 window and door units in a Matt Titania Powdercoat finish. This seamlessly complements the natural tones and increases the sense of space.

The living and dining room features an angled wall of windows, letting in ample sunlight and highlighting the view. 

In the centre of the home, a private courtyard can be accessed via large sliding doors from every room. With timber cladding, a colourful garden, and protection from the weather, this space feels warm and welcoming all year round.

UNO collaborated closely with Southcoast Construction to ensure that project timelines were met, creating a cohesive and calming home the clients can enjoy in any season.
