Case study – Pegasus

Modern coastal masterpiece

With input from our clients we designed this modern home, which is located in Pegasus to the north of Christchurch. This home is ideal for entertaining guests as it features an impressive kitchen and superb indoor-outdoor flow.

“This was the first time we’d built a home. We’ve been watching Grand Designs and such for years though so we were preparing for many scenarios. The reality though is that from start to finish the process was a breeze; Fraemohs designed the home we wanted at the price we could afford. Communication was really good the entire time – we always knew what was going on. Everyone was super friendly throughout and happy to help. Nothing was ever a problem and if we saw something not quite right, we just mentioned it and it was sorted. The building process was a lot faster than we expected! A friend of ours is an experienced builder and has inspected the house for us – he’s really impressed by the quality too. Really happy thanks. ”

– Sue, Pegasus


Key elements which help give this home the modern, coastal look our clients wanted include the monopitch roof and the unique combination of dark plaster and natural pine shiplap cladding. These striking design features are an excellent fit with the home’s location overlooking the tidal estuary out to the beach.

Other notable features of the home include raking ceilings in the kitchen, living and dining areas.

The build

Despite its distinctive style features, the build of this 3 bedroom plus study home progressed quite quickly and exceeded the client’s expectations around the timeframe involved. Having an internal double garage such as this home does is more cost-effective than opting for a separate garage since there is no need for a separate foundation and roofing.




For our client, the hardest part of the entire process was making decisions on the fittings and fittings. And it is a big decision, so our stylists were available to help out there as usual.
