Beach House - Pauanui

“A site left vacant so long locals had assumed it was public land has resulted in a measured response to ameliorate the loss of a supposed public amenity. The transparent seaside H-plan lifts the ubiquity of the form through a simple glazed walkway that provides privacy and complexity. The layering and overlapping of external spaces successfully recreates the feeling of a camping experience, a key aspect of the brief. The many needs of a multi-generational family have been superbly balanced in a simple manner to realise an extraordinary solution with consummate skill.”
