Great care has been taken to ensure Roys Bay Estate is designed to impress, as well as to conform to the highest building standards. In many cases Roys Bay Estate will exceed building code requirements. Care has been taken to ensure views, light and a relaxed modern atmosphere are maximised for every unit.
A mix of stained cedar weatherboard, schist and plaster cladding provides a cohesive palette of materials that are unmistakably Central Otago. The materials provide a unifying theme across the different design options. Roofing is long-run alpine tray Colorsteel which has a high rib and is commonly used in the region for its strong clean lines. All joinery is aluminum with thermal break and all windows are double-glazed to exceed the required thermal standards.

Hume Architects has extensive experience in residential buildings, including new builds, renovations and historical preservations. They’ve won numerous architectural awards for their work which also extends beyond residential to include a wide range of commercial, education and recreational projects.
