44 Bayview Road is contemporary family residence located to maximise views of the stunning Lyttelton Harbour. It features a long infinity-edge pool, with all living areas and bedrooms open to an extensive north-facing courtyard. From the outset, this building was designed to have inhabitants live in the landscape rather than a building.
To that end, the building can be thought of as an umbrella sheltering from the elements, rather than an enclosure closing people off from them. In many ways, the home feels like more of a bach rather than a house, and stepping inside gives you the immediate feeling of being on holiday.All rooms get views of the harbour on a single level, with a four car basement carpark and workshop. This house can best be described as simple, elegant, and refined for casual, informal living.
