Ruakaka House

Ruakaka House, Bream Bay, Northland, New Zealand

Ruakaka House is situated overlooking Bream Bay and Whangarei Heads.  Designed as a family house that sits slender and lightly on the landscape, overlooking landscape and Bay views. The home utilises sunlight for passive heating, natural airflow for passive cooling, high levels of insulation for energy efficiency, board and batten timber cladding, and has a natural wormarator waste system. During summer the clerestory windows naturally ventilate and cool the house.
