Punakaiki Bach

Website

Wanting a West Coast retreat with nature at their doorstep the owners of this beautiful Punakaiki Bach teamed up with James Warren of Upoko Architects and local company Tony Wilkins Builders. With a focus on having minimal impact on the surrounding area this beautiful example of a kiwi holiday getaway harmoniously nestles into the surrounding rain forest.

A modern take on a traditional design sees the first floor of this structure floating effortlessly over the open plan living area. Large APL Architectural over wall sliding panels open completely, letting the outside in removing any sense of structure. First floor aluminium joinery blends seamlessly into the darker paneling with a high level of detail blending modern aluminium & stainless steel with warm native timber finishes. Energy efficiency has been a key focus for the Central Otago homeowners with the use of Low E Max double glazed glass ensuring the home is kept warm even in the harshest of West Coast weather.
