Expertly Crafted With Rustic Sophistication
Located on a rural site called Matakana of Auckland, this modern barn known as “Matakana Barn,” is eye candy for all the neighbors, as it has quite the unique architectural style. Similar to an urban barn, Matakana Barn is fully wood crafted, yet with a contemporary flair. Kudos to the designer, SGA Ltd, as it’s hard to find any design deficiencies whatsoever with this barn.

A mere hour drive from Auckland City this new family home on a rural site in Matakana feels a million miles away. Perched upon a grassy knoll against a backdrop of native bush, the elevated siting delivers blanket views over the rural property, neighbouring vineyards and beyond. Beyond the central prominent gable, two arms stretch outward, a master wing to the east, a bedroom wing and garage to the west. The bedroom wings were designed with efficiency and modesty in mind – corrugate clad with trussed mono-pitched roofs to increase the budget available for the living spaces. The resulting home supports and inspires the family’s rural lifestyle, orientated for passive solar gain with thermal mass floors, solar hot water heating and on-site wastewater and water collection.
