A weathered timber container perched on a manuka-covered ridge, this is an aloof, isolated, mute object until the walls that exclude its surroundings fold out, like drawbridges, in an open-armed welcome. This magical box is then transformed into an extroverted and witty interpretation of the kiwi bach, with its warm golden timber interior, straddling and framing the views to sea and land.
