Keogh House



My own personal residenance, which has been the catalyst for this business, Which started life very different to the end result that is being constructed in 2017 to 2020.

The design process was 3 years in the making and with the help of Anatoly Patrick Architecture the base concept for the design was started and through over 9 changes we finally arrived at a design concept that could be drawn up an taken to council for final approval.

While like most people my wife and I had some basic wants, needs an must have's in the build. But due to a very difficult site that is at the end of a cud-de-sac. This problem need a great deal of visualisation to give this build the WOW factor that we wanted but most importantly it had to deliver on use for now and the future lifestyle requirement. Plus we wanted to absolutely make sure every room had an ocean view and the main living area utilise the 180 degree coastal view,

We had major problems get our energy rating until we could show that the main living area would achieve large amounts of natural sunlight to help heat the room in winter and only receive small level of very late afternoon sun in summer helping cooling needs. All this with place only a 2.4m roof area over the western facing deck and 1m overhang on northern facing gantry.

I created a 3D model so we could look at the build from all angles and undertake changes to maxise use of the site.
