Living in Tauranga and the surrounding areas is a bit like living in paradise. With the recent turn towards working from home and the growth of online careers, more people are looking to the family bach as an option for full-time living. At Powerhouse Architectural, we think the Bay of Plenty is a pretty spectacular place, so why not live your life like you are on a permanent holiday? Making a move from dense urban areas to a place where the living is a little easier may be just the change you need to destress and really begin to enjoy life every day.

Embracing The Coastal Lifestyle

If you have a classic Kiwi bach in Tauranga or the Bay of Plenty, you may be looking at an ideal lifestyle as far as location is concerned. However, many of these great old holiday houses require a complete overhaul. What feels quaint or rustic across the Christmas period may present as dank and outmoded if you are seriously considering embracing the coastal lifestyle all year round. There are all sorts of ways our Tauranga architects can convert your bach into your dream home, and lots of these old places are on a decent-sized tract of land - so there may even be design avenues which incorporate a second structure on the property.

Start With Good Bones

Your 1970’s bach has likely had very little attention across the intervening years, so the first step towards actioning an architectural transformation would be to get a builder through to check out the bones of the place. Powerhouse Architectural has fantastic relationships with builders, engineers, planners, and project managers in the Tauranga area, so we can make sure you connect with the right team to get the job done to a high standard.

Dream Big

Once you know where you are structurally, our architects in Tauranga can start putting together a building design concept that considers all the essential items on your wish list. Most baches will need a complete overhaul when it comes to the kitchen and bathroom, and you will quickly get excited once you realise the incredible possibilities at your fingertips with the right architect on board.

Better Living

Living the dream in Tauranga is all about that indoor/outdoor flow, so let your mind wander to covered decks, outdoor fireplaces, and skylights that let the moonlight in. It may be a big move to turn the bach into your permanent home, but at Powerhouse Architectural, we can turn that dream into a reality with innovative design and intelligent planning.
