Innovation & Products

Back to Manchester Project | Schematics | Back To Our Work

The whole house is an innovation.  It is the first of its kind.  It has set the bar for others…innovation and inspiration.  Every single nail, each angle, all reflections and textures, ancient wisdom and tomorrow’s gadgets along with attention to detail - down to the shadows cast - have been accounted for in the design and build of this little miracle that stands on Manchester Street. 

But as Dan said, it’s just the beginning.  Bigger (or smaller), better and more innovative - sustainable. Beautiful. Inspired by excellence; in harmony with nature.  The Manchester Street House is a beacon for future dreams and lifestyle.


Warmframe Warmframe™ is an innovative new building system which promises lower construction costs and a warm, comfortable, energy efficient home.  Combining Axxis steel framing from NZ Steel and Polyester Insulation by Mammoth - installed by Absolute energy will contribute hugely in reducing the owner’s electricity costs.  

Thermally Broken Architectural Windows from Rylock Canterbury.  Energy loss may be reduced by specifying Thermally Broken or insulated aluminium frames. This is achieved by using either polyamide insulating thermal strips or an insulating polymer. The thermal break works in association with double (or even triple) glazing by providing an insulating barrier within the frame minimising the transfer of energy (heat or cold) via the frame.

Kitchen Joinery supplied and installed by Euroform Kitchens.  They will create a kitchen that will compliment both your home and lifestyle…a kitchen that is stylish, innovative and unique.
