Keith Hay Homes innovating and shaping prefabricated housing in New Zealand
Keith Hay homes, the prefabricated specialist, has most certainly stood the test of time. In 1938 Keith Hay pioneered prefabricated homes in New Zealand, and after 79 years is still producing and delivering some of the best designed transportable homes in New Zealand.
There is no doubt that customers expect more from the design of their home these days. There is a real desire from customers to be able to buy a top quality architecturally designed home at an affordable price. In recognising this, the Keith Hay Architectural range was developed. The ‘Park Terrace’ and ‘The Horizon’ plans have been designed in collaboration with Architex NZ, an award winning practise recognised for excellent design resulting in sustainable homes perfectly suited to New Zealand landscapes.
The ‘Park Terrace’ is an entertainer’s dream with its extravagant designer kitchen, large living and dining area, complete with an ambient fireplace built into a beautiful feature wall. The floor to ceiling fully-recessing pocket sliders open out onto a large sheltered courtyard providing a perfect indoor/outdoor flow. This plan has been cleverly designed to start as a two bedroom plan and can be extended through pre-determined openings for future growth.
‘The Horizon’ incorporates a seamless central living zone which opens fully in two directions and separates the principal and secondary sleeping areas. The transparent living space has full height sliding glass walls which recess fully into pocket walls allowing the entire room to flow onto extensive partly covered decking. The master suite boasts an entire wall length of full height wardrobes which leads to a generous en-suite. The two other double bedrooms are accessed off individual foyers for optimum privacy from the living zone.
Not surprisingly, these stunning architecturally designed homes have been well received by the market. Keith Hay Homes is determined to continue to shape the future of prefabricated housing in New Zealand through such on-going innovation.
