This prime property made no exception. The internal finishes of this home used up half of the entire building time. It starts with the indoor ceiling. The aim was to create a very homey feeling with high standards but not to be too flash. The interior needed to adapt to the coastal location. The materials, the colours, the shapes - Creating a happy, elegant and timeless coastal design was vital. It turned out that the ceilings with the service ducts and the unique designed plight boxes are a significant design asset of the house. Many happy visitors were impressed by the extended tongue and groove ceilings that have been installed in major parts of the house. Many other visitors were most impressed with what nature has built and what views this building site provides. Coastal homey feeling look with white washed/bleached Tongue and Groove Ceiling Indoor - All Ceilings and Service Ducts (not Atrium) Luxury House with High Timber Ceilings 2268 meters Tongue and Groove 19x120mm sanded, whitewashed/bleached, sealed, and secret nail fixed to achieve a coastal look Service Ducts and built-in Lights 115 special designed uplights incorporated in 293-meter service channels allowing access to water pipes and power, data, phone, TV and security cables. The service ducts are installed in the space between the ground level and top-level windows. The custom made removable panels slide into the uplight lighting Box hold with one screw. Therefore most of the services like water, power, data, heating are partly accessible. Service Ducts with Uplight Boxes Internal Doors 14 Solid white Doors Doors should close a cap in the wall so no light or noise can transfer from one room to another. Sometimes New Zealand doors are not built to overlap door frames. For this reason, together with the desire to match the door design with the rest of the interior was the trigger to have the doors custom-designed and made. All doors are equipped with European hardware. Some of them have an internal draft barrier built-in at the bottom, which lifts when opened. Two doors have double glass pannels incorporated to match the overall design. Some open plan areas like Atrium, Livingroom or Kitchen/Dining have no doors to allow free flow and heat exchange from the Atrium in the open areas. A very welcome source of passive heating when needed. The east-facing living room cools down with the colder sea air and cross-ventilation with the top windows.

Hardwood flooring provides low maintenance, is solid and durable, with better air quality for allergy sufferers. The used Tasmanian oak timber is engineered hardwood. Which means it's more stable because of its layers. The layers are perpendicular to each other. It has less expansion and contraction and allows a tighter fit, especially during the winter when it's drier. The floorboard joists are so close together that the connection is seamless. Each board is carefully laid to have a consistent pattern glued to the primed concrete floor with an expanding glue specially made for timber floors. That method was espacially crucial because of the hydronic underfloor heating and its possible negative effect on cracking or deforming when heated. There is a top layer of 3mm one direction timber which can be sanded and resealed if needed multiple times. It was well worth having an engineered wood floor. It has not moved in harsh sunlight or dry winter periods. The surface temperature of the timber floor should not exceed 27 degrees to avoid any risks of damaging the timber floor. The timber floor feels warm in winter, even when the underfloor heating is not running.
