Mission Bay House

2007, Mission Bay Auckland

The main house is made up of two intercepting gabled forms creating sheltered zones from the predominant winds.

The building forms relate to the vernacular of the central Otago shed in form and in the shutters designed to relate to the big louvred vents that can be seen in many rural farm buildings.

A limited pallet of materials also allows for an elegant connection to the surrounding landscape.

Clients statement:
A house with character and timeless characteristics but incorporating the benefits of modern materials and technology. A classical and elegant style of house of substance reflecting rural and central Otago influences. Interior - 'old NZ'.
