Paekakariki, Kapiti Coast, NZ
This project is all about enjoying your garden. Nestled among two mature pohutukawa trees towards the rear of the property, the studio uses extensive glazing to capture sun from the north and the west as well as opening the interior up to the trees and garden. Metal profile 'sandwich' panels are used on the non glazed walls and roof. Macrocarpa facings around the joinery, roof, and internal structure provide a softened contrast to the harder edged materials of steel, glass and aluminium.
