Above: The wings of this new home wrap around a sunny entertaining terrace. Built by Fowler Homes, the house was the Local Supreme Winner of the Master Builders House of the Year Awards for the Taranaki region. It also won a Gold Award, Category Award and a national Gold Reserve Award. Right: A raked cedar ceiling adds visual warmth, and is a key feature of the family living area. A picturesque natural setting helped to determine the design of this prize-winning home by Fowler Homes. Two wings of the house wrap around a large enter- taining deck with a gabled overhang supported by schist stone columns. On the inte- rior, a raked cedar ceiling is the pièce de résistance, creating an eye-catching feature for the living area. The schist stone continues on the interior of the home, where it forms a fire surround. In the 2014 Master Builders House of the Year Awards, the home was the Local Supreme Winner. It also won the James Hardie New Homes $450,000 – $600,000 Gold Award for the Taranaki region, plus the Local Category Award. In addition, the project was awarded a national Gold Reserve Medal.
