WAIATARUA HOUSE in AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND by Monk Mackenzie

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Article source: Monk Mackenzie

The brief was for a new house on a challenging, steep site in a bush clad creek gully. One of the design challenges was to insert a bold intervention into a sensitive bush reserve whilst still maintaining a sense of modesty and poetic.

The house was designed for a couple in their mid-sixties who had always wanted a house surrounded by nature though not far removed from city life – a place or respite from the speed of city life.

AUCKLAND ZOO in New Zealand by Monk Mackenzie with Glamuzina Patterson

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

Article source: Monk Mackenzie with Glamuzina Patterson

Due to expanding giraffe numbers the Auckland Zoo needed a new a giraffe breeding shelter; essentially a functional oversized shed with two dens and a keeper area.

The design team responded to the brief by proposing a shelter that assumed an understated external appearance, whose mass was playfully broken down with intersecting roof forms that articulated the junction between the two dens whilst accentuating the collision of human and giraffe scales.

Arruba Bach in Auckland, New Zealand by Bossley Architects

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Article source: Bossley Architects

A relatively mundane set of requirements has been transformed into an exciting and vibrant treehouse. A one room space serves as bedroom, workroom and rumpus area, with a separate small bedroom in the concrete masonry tower. The red box ‘floats’ above the boat space, and is nestled amongst the branches of the existing pohutukawa. The landscape of the hillside behind will be visible under the new structure.

Article source: Dorrington Architects & Associates

A contempory home incorporates the charming but time-worn house, and capitalises on the stunning views on offer.

Evill House in Nelson, New Zealand by Studio Pacific Architecture

Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

Article source: Studio Pacific Architecture

This house at Twisted Pine is set on four hectares of undulating land on a promontory near Mapua in the tidal waters of the Waimea Inlet.
The land was covered for many years in tall pine trees, which were cleared to open the site to the water and views. This pine timber was milled and forms the basis of the house itself, meaning that the house’s fabric is literally from the land upon which it sits. Making the most of their impressively large spans, the massive timber beams and columns crafted from these 80-year-old pines were arranged in three long, low wings around a central courtyard.
