SIPtris | THE TEE | Nationwide



Faced with the challenge of an evident housing crisis in New Zealand, we at Arête turned to some of our past projects to draw inspiration from the successes and learnings realised through the course of the design and build stages. What was born was an affordable housing solution that tackles the key aspects of residential design: Quality design aesthetic, space maximisation, high performance and modulation.

SIPtris Housing leans into the Tetris concept of small pieces, or forms, that fuse to make a whole. The modular SIP construction methodology makes these designs efficient, low in waste, and quick to erect. With six offerings, we believe there is a SIPtris house suitable for any site, which can meet clients needs and wants.

Presenting, The Tee. Three bedrooms curated into an efficient 91m2 footprint. This split programme home provides an excellent solution for families, or first-home builders, who are looking for all the key features of a modern home. The small scale takes cost and environmental impacts into consideration, an important focus in the changing residential environment.

These are off-the-shelf available designs. Enquire now for more details.
