Herne Bay House

Website

"This house receives the Waitemata with the power that it is delivered! The long, steep waterfront site on the edge of a public reserve presented the architect with a sizeable challenge. The house is grounded and protected by cast in-situ concrete walls reminiscent of ramparts or even the embattlements that remain at the edges of the Waitemata harbour. Internally these walls allow delightful courtyards that allow daylight and privacy to coexist as quiet retreats from the vast views to the north. The exquisite attention to detail and thoughtful planning make for a well executed coastal house with a welcome sense of permanence."

Winner - NZIA Resene Local Award for Architecture 2007
