Located near the end of Wellington's Victoria Street, beneath the branches of a rare Northern Rata tree, this design blends open plan modern living with rustic and natural materials. CityBach is essentially a one bedroom apartment above double garaging with a roof-top entertaining deck complete with kitchenette and BBQ area. The lower level is constructed of concrete block walls with concrete slab floor. The upper level is lightweight timber frame construction with Titan board cladding and Macrocarpa rainscreen cladding. Large areas of glazing including skylights have been incorporated to allow the maximum amount of light into the space. Internally recycled native timber has been used for flooring and kitchen bench tops. Construction was completed in August 2007 and CityBach featured in the Jun/Jul 2009 issue of Home Magazine
