Herbst Architects. New Zealand.
Aotea Bach. Great Barrier Island, NZ.
Residential home for Timms Bach.
Ross Wetland Folly. Medlands beach.
Compson Bach: covered outdoor deck/kitchen/dining area for summer holidays. Block piers and double timber posts hold delicate trusses that provide a structural rhythm that reinforces individual living spaces. Translucent walls enclose private terraces that focus views on beautiful ridgelines rather than joining the jostling water views.
Lindale Beach, NZ.
