Contemporary Lockwood home is modified Parnell plan with soaring sarked ceilings, solid blonded timber walls, and good flow to outdoor living area
Three decades after first walking into a Lockwood show home, the owners of this new house are still enamoured of the design and construction.
Peter Wood experienced his first Lockwood on a visit to New Zealand in 1985, so it was no surprise that he and his wife Lyn chose to build with Lockwood when they came to live in this country.
Their latest home, in Pegasus, Canterbury, is the second Lockwood for the couple – the first was built by Lockwood in Rotorua.
"We love how a Lockwood is cool in summer and warm in winter," says Peter Wood. "We also like the strong, sturdy nature of the homes, and the way they are built."
Their latest home is based on the Lockwood Parnell plan, which was altered to include a scullery. The Woods also extended the roof above the two wings to provide large covered terraces off the formal living room and enlarged master bedroom. The roof is supported by schist columns.
The couple chose a blonded solid wood interior that gives the home a very light and airy look. The wood is contrasted by bright red doors with a hint of pink. Peter Wood says the pop of colour enlivens the interior and is a great point of difference.
