A vernacular verandahed form belies its massive scale, the apex height is at 5.5 metre and its knee at 3.4 metre in a fully macrocarpa interior, traditionally detailed juxtaposed against black steel fittings.  At the centre of the house is a stone fireplace, constructed from rock quarried from the station.  The project incorporates mainly custom designed fittings, door hardware, furniture and lighting, oak grills and handles.

The building shuts down during storms or when unoccupied and when opened sets up both seaward and leeward exterior environments.  It is conceived of as a piece of slowly aging farm driftwood, in the future stock might come right up to the building.

About Patterson Associates

Patterson Associates is New Zealand’s most internationally recognised architectural practice. Pattersons has clients and projects as far afield as India, Singapore, Australia, Germany and China.

The practice is based on a very simple idea; if a building naturally belongs, feels like it fits logically into a place, into an environment, a time and culture, then the people that inhabit the building will likely feel a sense of belonging there as well. This methodology connects theories of beauty, confidence, economy and comfort.
