Scarborough House by Borrmeister Architects

Inspiring ocean-front hillside residence located in Christchurch, New Zealand, designed in 2017 by Borrmeister Architects.

Description by Borrmeister Architects

An exciting rock-face / hillside home located in Scarborough, Christchurch.

It is a modestly sized, relaxed, playful and environmentally conscious home on an extremely difficult hill site overlooking Sumner beach.
The house features a lightweight, sail-like roof supported on two tree-like timber and steel support structures and seemingly ‘floating’ above the space.
