Designed for the hardest clients in the world…….My family & I!
Situated on an acre of picturesque avocado orchard just on the outskirts of Whangamata with views back over the tranquil harbour to Whangamata township beyond it needed to be a strong robust low level family home constructed with natural honest raw materials.
Inspired by the strong minimal architecture of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe the house needed to nestle down to the land and anchor it in the natural environment with robust materials and a floating roofline to hover above with large overhangs to protect and allow areas for outdoor living.
