New Lockwood show home in Christchurch with solid blonded wood interior and large canopy over deck supported by stone columns

Lockwood Madrid show home with cedar and aluminium cladding


For several weeks people passing by this Christchurch location watched with interest as a new home went up. And now the Lockwood show home in Hornby is open, they are stopping for a closer look.

The 167.4m2 show home, which is based on a modified Lockwood Madrid plan, has been attracting scores of visitors every weekend, and during the week.

Murray Stewart, Lockwood South Island regional manager, says the solid blonded wood interior, with its spacious, high-vaulted living area, is turning heads.

"People feel the house is even larger than it actually is," he says. "This is mainly due to the innovative design that avoids wasted space with hallways. The central living area itself provides separation between the two bedroom wings, and the second and third bedrooms open off another family room."

The show home also illustrates just what can be achieved when you personalise your space. For this house, the blonded timber was teamed with local greywacke stone, which features on the fireplace surround and on columns supporting the canopy above the outdoor living area.


Other personalised touches include a painted wall in the living area that's the perfect blank canvas for artworks and shelving. There is also an eye-catching decorative wallpaper in the family room, and a blue feature wall in a bedroom painted in Dulux Huka Falls.

The many benefits of the Lockwood building system are showcased as well, including the high level of insulation. The system has CodeMark certification, which means it was tested independently and proven to comply with the NZ Building Code. It's also an assurance that robust manufacturing systems are in place.
