Photo: SIMON DEVITT A Scotts Landing beach house has won the Residential Architectural Excel- lence section of the 2010 NZ Wood Timber Design Awards. The house is owned by Stephenson and Turner principal Alan Seelye and his wife, and is the first home Alan has designed. His usual specialty is plan- ning complex laboratories and medical facilities. He says the win was a real surprise. We designed the house to meet our personal aims and brief. The building is not an architectural statement, but rather an honest and discrete solution which responds to the natural characteristics of the site,'' Alan says. I wanted to create a simple, honest and comfortable beach house that's in keeping with the protected coastal environment.'' The home consists of two linked structures, providing a bach-like feel in summer and a smaller, more energy-efficient residence in winter. Its many environmentally-friendly features helped the house stand out for the jury. These range from recycled rimu flooring, macrocarpa panelling, and douglas fir rafters through to solar panels for hot water heating, recycled decking, a stand alone septic system with discharge into trees behind the house, and minimal use of paint. Two local builders -- Ted Sheppard and Keith Jones -- brought Alan's design to completion. The property was originally owned by boating enthusiast and potter Peter Oxborough. Alan has tried to honour that history by retaining his original timber fired kiln, and his sign Mahurangi may your waters run clean forever.'' Licence tests all terrain vehicle skills FarmSafe will launch an All Ter- rain Vehicle Licence for farm users early next year. This licence will verify riders' ability and skill to operate an ATV. We hope the licence, along with Labour Minister Kate Wilkinson's efforts in championing farm safety, will further improve the safe use of ATVs on our farms,'' FarmSafe chairman Charlie Pedersen says. ATV guidelines were developed and launched by the council nine years ago.
