Just before the New Zealand Level 4 lockdown came into effect, the Homestyle team visited Alex and Corban at Island Bay House to chat about their Auckland home build journey and photograph the final product of months and years of work.
Little did we know then that we would soon all be living and working together apart, remotely and from home, including Homestyle Editor Alice Lines and her team. In this, the June/July issue (and the first remotely-produced issue of the magazine), we're excited to reveal Island Bay House in full. Finally!
At a time when home has become so important to our lives, we hope that you'll find a little inspiration inside the pages of this issue (and the walls of Island Bay House) and enjoy reading about the ups and downs of this unique project and journey.
Homestyle June/July issue, out today! Get your copy here.
Inside you'll find all the details of Alex and Corban's design and the amazing partners they worked with to create their new home, including Dulux New Zealand, Laminex NZ, Buildstrong, Blum, Caesarstone, Laminam, Melteca, Cavalier Bremworth, Rosenfeld Kidson & Co., Outdure, Teamturf, Vidaspace and Viking Roofspec.
