Coastal in its setting yet urban in every other sense, Chain Mail in Mount Maunganui was built on a small site for clients who demanded something different. While ata (formerly known as Adam Taylor Architecture) recognised the coastal positioning of the property and the practicalities that it demands (harsh climate and a lot of time spent covered in salt water and sand), the home ignores a coastal aesthetic. Instead, we embraced strong industrial structures and materials to create all of the necessities and luxuries of a city home at the beach.
“Before we started our build project we started the search for an Architectural Designer, we wanted someone that was energetic, like minded and not scared to be different. Adam was our man and we have not been disappointed. A great friendship has evolved and the success we’ve had working together on our various projects ensures that we will continue a relationship with ata well into the future.”
