Blurring the lines between inside and out ensures this new home by Fowler Homes (above right) caters to modern lifestyles. The house is built on a relatively confined site, so every inch of available space is used to provide generous living spaces, inside and out. The innovative solutions that make this possible have been recognised by judges in the 2014 Master Builders House of the Year Awards. The home won the Placemak- ers New Homes $350,000 – $450,000 Gold Award and Local Category Award in the Bay of Plenty-Central Plateau region. The home also won a national Gold Reserve Award. The impressive sense of flow in the house is enhanced by recessed runners, which create an almost seamless transition between the inte- rior timber flooring and the deck. The home is just as comfortable in winter, with full-ducted gas heating. For details of Fowler Homes offices nationwide, phone 0800 4 F OWLER (4 369 537).
