Planned to perfection

Landmark Homes latest Ready to Build plan, the Wainui, artfully blends contemporary design optimised to capture panoramic views, seamless outdoor living, and adaptable living spaces tailored to modern lifestyles.

The inspiration for the Wainui plan lies in the architectural elegance of Landmark Home’s Whitianga Showhome, a Design and Build home built to capture the views of its waterway setting.

Shelley Begg, from Landmark Homes NZ, offers insights into the Wainui's plan development, highlighting its distinctive features and the thoughtful considerations behind its design.

Custom crafted

With a rich history of crafting homes that blend innovative design with practical living, Landmark Homes has once again raised the bar with the introduction of their latest Ready to Build plan.

The Wainui plan is based on Landmark Homes Whitianga Showhome which was custom-designed for a Coromandel couple who will use the home after its Showhome period.

Not every Landmark Showhome transitions into a Ready to Build plan, but Wainui was different. “With features such as a flat roofline, multi-level living, and the latest in contemporary design, this style of home filled a gap in our plan collection, offering a fresh perspective amidst our more traditional and pavilion-style homes,” explains Shelley.

“We knew from the start that this design was something special. It's contemporary, yet enduring, and perfectly complements our existing range of Read to Build plans.”

Lifestyle-inspired layout

The Wainui plan is a masterclass in design, meticulously crafted to make the most of a stunning view, be it a tranquil waterway or a lush rural landscape. Its architectural prowess and thoughtful layout ensure that every aspect of the home is both beautiful and functional.

At the heart of the Wainui’s design philosophy is its seamless merging of the indoors with the outdoors, creating a living space that extends beyond its walls. The use of large windows and glass doors not only bathes the interior in natural light but also ensures that the breathtaking views are always in sight. The iconic entry staircase, a standout feature, sets the tone for the rest of the home, offering a blend of elegance and modernity.

The Wainui's intelligent design places practical areas, such as the garage and utility rooms, at the front, allowing the living spaces at the back to enjoy unobstructed views and access to outdoor living areas. As you move through the home, it gracefully transitions from the practicalities of life to a space designed for enjoyment and relaxation.

"It's all about capturing those views and creating spaces that invite the outside in,” says Shelley. “The moment you step through the front door, the house opens up to reveal a captivating vista, making every day feel like a getaway."

This smart division ensures that Wainui is not just a place to live but a place to enjoy life, with each space serving its purpose beautifully.

Flex appeal

The clever design of the Wainui plan means it offers excellent adaptability, a hallmark of Landmark Homes' approach to design. This flexibility allows homeowners to tailor the plan’s layout to their unique preferences and the specific characteristics of their site. Whether it's adjusting the orientation to capture the perfect view or repositioning the garage to enhance functionality, the Wainui plan offers the freedom to fine-tune your home to fit your lifestyle seamlessly.

Landmark's commitment to adaptable living spaces means that personal touches aren't just possible; they're encouraged. The plan's design invites homeowners to envision and create spaces that reflect their individual needs and tastes. This philosophy underscores Landmark Homes' dedication to not just building houses, but crafting homes that adapt and evolve with the people who live in them.

Balancing elegance and economy

Navigating the balance between affordability and luxury, the Wainui presents a thoughtful approach to cost without compromising on quality.

With the Whitianga Showhome as its blueprint, the plan has been refined to enhance affordability, making the dream of owning a beautifully designed home more accessible. Yet, it retains the flexibility to incorporate premium features, allowing homeowners to elevate their living experience according to their desires and level of investment.

Like all Landmark Homes plans, the Wainui is pre-costed, offering potential homeowners a clear and realistic starting point for their budgeting journey. This transparency in pricing provides a solid foundation for financial planning, ensuring that the path to building your dream home is marked by confidence and peace of mind.
