This Loft Studio is situated in the Waitakere Ranges and is close to the beach. Perfect for a BNB. With the option to add a kitchen upstairs this could easily become the perfect Minor Dwelling or Granny Flat  for a small site.

What problem did the client need help with?

The clients approached us to consent and build a small 2 storey studio they hoped to set up as an Airbnb.  Their property was a challenging site in Laingholm, down a long winding road and covered in trees. It required Resource Consent for building coverage,  impermeable surface infringements and slope instability

What was the process we took to solve it?

Our Town Planner, Arbourist and Geotechnician prepared and submitted the application which was successfully granted.  We then took the clients brief and designed a studio apartment that fitted the site and the clients specific requirements. The build, although tricky because of the difficult site conditions, went smoothly.

What was the end result?

The clients have been delighted with the result. They have achieve their goal of setting up a Bed and Breakfast and have had great feedback from all their guests.  To View the Bed and Breakfast, click the following link:
