Rebuild with Accoya cladding


New Zealand

The third incarnation

The third incarnation

Homeowners of this newly built Auckland property have lived on the site for the past 27 years. They cherish the location and the outstanding sea views across Murray’s Bay so much that instead of moving house they just rebuild. This is the third property to have stood on this plot since they’ve owned it and this time they have chosen to incorporate Accoya wood.

The desired style and design of the property was known before the build began. The homeowners wanted a striking black home and with such close proximity to the sea, their architect David Giles from ARCreate felt Accoya was the natural and ideal choice. The exceptional stability of Accoya means it moves far less compared with other wood species, therefore coatings remain in place for longer and require minimal maintenance.


Applications used in this project:Cladding Cladding

Accoya wood was used in this family home to clad the top section which wraps around and meets seamlessly with their 3 metre high sliding doors. Above the front entrance door there is also an Accoya pergola, giving shade whilst not cutting out the light completely. Both Accoya applications were coated with Resene coatings in shade Pitch Black.

ARCreate had used Accoya in previous projects, such as Orewa Beach Home and Red Beach Beachfront. With their prior experience and knowledge they specified Accoya for this project and the homeowners were happy to proceed. Alongside the other features and with hard work from the builders, Glover Homes, a stylish black award-winning home has been created. In 2020 the home was recognised by the Registered Master Builders for three awards; Top 100 House of the year, Gold award Auckland House of the year and Lifestyle award Auckland House of the year.
