Italian Influence


Italian Influence 3

Don Nelson was commissioned to design this contemporary Italian residence overlooking the Hobson Basin with views to Auckland City and Hauraki Gulf. The project was extensively detailed to give a classical Italian feel throughout. This was complimented by the selection of fine imported furniture and artworks. The clients were thrilled with the overall result. As this was the client’s second home designed by Don Nelson, knowledge of the client’s collection of artwork and Italian furniture were an important consideration in the design layouts. Wide imported marble steps on the exterior, with heavy wrought ironwork and curved façade-beams above, create an impressive entrance.

The large double height entrance lobby features a grand curved staircase with Italian style wrought iron leading up to the upper floor bedrooms. This lobby also leads through to the main living areas.

The North Facing façade incorporates a dramatic central column support to upper floor façade beams with covered alfresco dining area.  An infinity edge pool to the north/western corner gives a water to water effect and discrete soft lighting enhances the outdoor area.
