2022 Waikato/Bay of Plenty Architecture Awards Winner

Fillmore House

Designed as a family holiday retreat, Fillmore House is nestled into the base of a native bush clad hill in Okawa Bay, Lake Rotoiti. With its clean, rectangular form, the building’s raw and robust textures frame the lake views – it sits beautifully in the native bush , exuding a sense of belonging and permanence. The interior is moody and inviting, complimented by warm timber tones, dark steel, and well-considered lighting. Seamless indoor-outdoor flow on the lower level incorporates a generous overhang and sunken firepit. These elements provide sheltered gathering spaces year-round and encourage social interactions with neighbours strolling the fenceless lakefront yard.
