NZIA New Zealand Award for ArchitectureSlicing into a grassed headland which projects into the Mahurangi Harbour, Waipiata is beautifully integrated into the landscape with its composition of recessive living spaces between powerfully expressed horizontal roof planes and terraces. The broad horizontal roofs topped with shiny black pebbles and staunch precast walls devise masterly views into the surrounding coves.

Trend Article online – www.trendsideas.comJust as water plays an important visual role in the identity of the house, so too does light, with its ever-changing, almost physical manifestation. “Allowing the light to carve up the spaces means you never get the same sense of the house on a day-to-day – or even on a minute-to-minute – basis. Each person’s experience of, and relationship to, the house is unique”.

Trend Article Two – PDF BrochureAs well as being a family home, the house operates as a boutique lodge. The intention with the design was to give visitors a sense of escape. It makes sense then that the homeowners too, should benefit from the tropical vacation feel within their own private space.
