Waipatiki Beach House
This house stands out on arrival at Waipatiki beach as the most interesting built form in the vicinity. The crisp twin boxes are carefully placed on the site and maximise the views while taking the elements into account. The living spaces open up fully to a large expanse of decking which relates to the views but at the same time provides some privacy from the neighbouring section. Together, the materials chosen are an excellent selection for the location, and ease of construction was achieved through the Architect’s very comprehensive set of three-dimensional drawings.
