The house is located in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. On the other hand, there is a curious fact about the construction of the current dwelling. The old house that was there was destroyed during the earthquakes in 2010/2011. Then the customers of “Case Ornsby Design” bought the site and so the design of the new house started.

The cedar wood siding and the welcoming interior of the chic house
We agree that the cedar wood cladding gives the facade a super warm look. We feel the welcoming atmosphere outside where the designers have focused on comfortable furniture and white decor . In this way, the space seems spacious and much brighter. In addition, the friendly atmosphere is enhanced by the fireplace which is in fact essential for cozy evenings with the family. The living room, shown in the picture above, overlooks the dining room where there is a large wooden table.
However, the most spectacular element is the large sliding bay window combining both practical functions. In addition to allowing natural light to enter, this type of windows plays the role of a connection between indoor and outdoor space. Here is the proof above: the bay window gives access to the veranda completely surrounded by cedar wood. For a more discreet and intimate effect, the inhabitants decided to opt for simple but elegant curtains.
A warm material par excellence, cedar wood dresses this contemporary home in the heart of Christchurch to make it a true welcoming haven. Note above the bedroom with an ultra cozy decor with zen keys. During the night, recessed lights illuminate the room in a discreet way while during the day the sliding glass doors invite the natural light inside.
As shown above, the bedroom also has a stylishly appointed and stylish bathroom. Always welcome inside, green plants add a fresh touch.
Exterior cedar wood cladding in full harmony with the surrounding landscape
Another image shows the perfect harmony between the cedar wood siding and the landscape around. You can now see two of the four linked dwellings. Each of the individual buildings has a wooden deck. Moreover, we would like to mention the stone steps that are very decorative for modern garden design.
