Water House

Water House


A house on the edge of Ihutai, the Avon Heathcote Estuary in Christchurch. The owners wanted a modern beach house and the finished result achieves this, providing contemporary relaxed living beside the sea. An internal courtyard provides protection from sea breezes whilst opening up to the afternoon sun.


A few words from our client:

“Dalman Architects listened to what I wanted and have created a wonderful new house for us on the water. The design maximises the very narrow and tight site, and their attention to detail was first class. I love every day here and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.”
