Contemporary low energy homes by Jessop Architects 


Welcome to Wavesong

The Architecture

Designed by award-winning Auckland architect Darren Jessop, Wavesong’s seven COOLHOUSE homes epitomise the very best contemporary New Zealand architecture has to offer. The concept of the COOLHOUSE design is to engender the quintessential Kiwi holiday home, with great indoor-outdoor flow, perfect for entertaining any time of the year, flowing onto soft lawns and a heavily landscaped fringe.

Wavesong COOLHOUSES come in two distinctive designs – Mahene and Taumata, from the Maori meaning for ‘serene’ and ‘resting place’. Both layouts offer spacious open-plan living, generous, sun-drenched north-facing decks, full-height floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, and one-and-a-half bathrooms.

Wavesong and COOLHOUSE

The concept for COOLHOUSE Collection comes from the first certified Passive House in Australasia, designed and built by Jessop Architects. COOLHOUSE uses these low energy practices to deliver a quality home in excess of current New Zealand building code standards. We have specifically modelled our designs to suit the New Zealand climate, specifications vary depending on location. They are healthy, warm and comfortable, low energy and durable. Architecturally designed by award-winning architect Darren Jessop, these homes feature clean lines and functional living spaces that make them beautiful too.

COOLHOUSE is currently building in the upper north region of greater Auckland, throughout the Coromandel and in the greater Christchurch area. Coolhouse can build nationwide, pending builder availability.
