Perched on a large block in Waiheke, this holiday home enjoys magnificent views back to Auckland city and across the Hauraki Golf. With the way our weather is behaving, a little island retreat escape is definitely on the cards for our design tour today.
Creating depth in the home, the solid stone walls and plastered concrete blocks anchor the building to its context, while the outdoor living spaces are clad in plywood with vertical and horizontal battens.
The light filters throughout the home to create a calming, relaxing retreat away from all the hustle and bustle of every day life. The deep colours allow the building to hide amongst the Pohutukawas and the landscaping is minimal so as not to detract from the dominant trees which surround the building platform beautifully.
Happy Monday THS Readers
