Don Nelson – Mediterranean Style Homes in New Zealand
Mediterranean house plans in New Zealand tend to encompass a mix of Italian, French and Spanish styles, leaning more one way than another, depending on your own style. A Mediterranean home brings back memories of warm, lazy afternoons walking along the beach, watching the waves crash onto the sand, as the sun sets over the hills.
Think of rambling vineyards, cobbled lanes, red sunsets and an alfresco lunch shared with friends, and you have a sense of New Zealand’s Mediterranean style of home architecture, which is becoming so popular today.
The essence of Mediterranean House designs in New Zealand
Classic Mediterranean homes have low pitched tile roofs, stucco walls, columns, arched windows, wrought iron balconies and lots of outdoor spaces for alfresco dining and entertaining. At Don Nelson (Award winning architects & building architectural designer) we can design your Mediterranean home with its signature red tiles, caramel stucco exterior, tall arched windows and a beautiful breezy courtyard, perfect for outdoor entertaining.
Mediterranean homes in New Zealand have spacious foyers, lofty ceilings with ornate cornices, wrought iron balustrades flowing up decorative staircases, stunning chandeliers, large decorative mirrors and welcoming family rooms. Add to this a custom designed gourmet kitchen, a walk-in pantry, butler’s pantry, casual breakfast bar and a formal dining room and you have a Mediterranean house in New Zealand that is perfect for your family.
In general, Mediterranean style house plans in New Zealand are a breathtaking potpourri of French, Spanish and Italian architecture, ideal for our warm, sunny summers and cool, winter nights. Just imagine relaxing in your courtyard with a bottle of chilled wine, sharing a meal with family and friends and admiring the expansive views over our crystal clear lakes.
New Zealand is eminently suited to the Mediterranean style of home and in turn, we have embraced this design style with a warmth and an acceptance, so characteristic of New Zealanders.
