A balanced lifestyle in Taranaki
The Makers and Gareth Shearman
When Hayden and Charlotte Shearman moved to New Plymouth from the big smoke, they called on The Makers to build them a high-quality home. Specialising in new builds and renovations, this small construction company was tasked with creating the family's dream home by the beach.
The Makers reached out to the local UNO team to supply 22 aluminium window and door units for this project.
A family's dream home
The goal of this residential build was to provide a high-quality, luxurious home that offers a balanced lifestyle. Just a short drive from New Plymouth, the location and design provided an opportunity for this Auckland family to escape the big city.
The main challenge of this project was the strict deadline. The couple had to move down to Ōakura in time to begin their new jobs so the construction needed to be completed on schedule.
Large and light-filled
To ensure the project was completed on time, the UNO team was involved in the early stages of planning. We supplied 22 units in total, including a range of sliding doors, awning windows, hinge doors, and entrance doors.
The client wanted the home to be filled with natural light so we supplied expansive windows, particularly in the main living room. This allows the sunlight to pour in and also provides a stunning focal point aligned with the home's modern aesthetic.
Finished with a Matt Charcoal Powdercoat and clear double-glazing, these units tie in beautifully with the minimal, contemporary design.
A variety of window and door units were used across this development
To capitalise on space, sliding doors were used to open up living areas onto private balconies.
Entrance doors in a Matt Charcoal powdercoat were used at the front of all the houses in this development to create a cohesive look and provide a functional accessway.
Awning windows in Matt Charcoal aluminium joinery made up the majority of the windows used in this project.
Hinged doors were used on this project for easy access in and out of the building but also to provide a more appropriate entrance solution than an automated door for this setting.
