This family home sits within a new suburban subdivision, bordered by a forest reserve and overlooking Nelson’s Tasman Bay. Conceived to provide a durable, cost efficient and thermally sustainable house solution for a young and creative family, the Tilt Panel House was developed using a commercial approach to fabricating buildings with pre-formed insulated concrete panels. The industrial structure was then domesticated with applied layering of texture and light to soften and warm as a family home.

The Tilt Panel House received a commendation at the 2009 NZ Concrete Awards “given in recognition of a residential building of outstanding achievement in the advancement of concrete practice in design, construction, rehabilitation or research.”
