wellington box 131 transportable home

A tight site in Wellington’s quirky seaside suburb Lyall Bay, was the perfect landing pad for this iconic, award-winning relocatable home. At only 131m2 the 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom beachy abode features contemporary galley kitchen, office, separate laundry and scullery with spacious open plan living, eye-catching architectural features and eclectic charm throughout.

The brief was for a unique, ‘stand out piece of architecture’ reflected in both the exterior and interior. Because of the small, awkward site (372m2) and urban environment the client wanted an offsite built home and the flexibility to relocate the dwelling at a future date. The simple rectangular design catered to the narrow site, taking full advantage of the restricted area by positioning parking space to the front, a large entertainment deck area to the western side and a functional services area concealed to the rear.

This home design won a commended award at the 2018 ADNZ Home Design Awards in the Residential Design Compact New Home up to 150m2 category. 

What our client had to say...

"Excited to hear that my new house has left Cambridge on route for Lyall Bay (yep big trip)!! Fully finished, right down to TVs, sound system, wardrobes, kitchen etc. just need to plug it in, stock the fridge and beer fridge, hit the sound system button, stoke the fire and job done! Ready to live in within half a day of it arriving!!! The home is beyond awesome thanks to Lee Turner and the Elevate team. I can't explain how much fun and how easy this process has been with Lee, especially as I changed soo much, soo many times!! Class act and product. Thanks again Lee and team.”
