Light Mine, Kuaotunu

Website

Light Mine

Designed by Crosson Architects, the house has strong sculptural forms which were inspired by the history of Kuaotunu and an old drawing of some of the many mine shafts that dominated the landscape in the gold-mining boom of the 1800s. The three turret structures have windows at the top allowing light to flood the rooms below. Mining the light as opposed to the earth.

These eye-catching features represented one of the more complex aspects of the build. Each shaft is different in size and shape with none of the sides equal to the other.

The rustic exterior, which contrasts strongly with the modern clean lines inside, was achieved by using reclaimed swamp Totara which will weather over time, complementing the sand and beach vegetation.

Constructed over three pods the home has plenty of space for the extended family and flows seamlessly to the beach below.

Light Mine was HOME magazine’s home of the Year for 2020.
