Reinterpreting the New Zealand timber building tradition 

Conceived as a container sitting lightly on the land, the bach reinterprets the New Zealand building tradition - the crafting of wood - expressing structure, cladding, lining and joinery in a raw and unique way. A simple mechanism opens the "box" on arrival, providing a stage for living - and closes down on departure, providing protection. Unadorned timber provides a connection to nature and the natural. Walls disappear - shower, bath, living and bedrooms connect to the outside, enhancing experience. This house is designed to capture the essential spirit of the New Zealand holiday in the New Zealand landscape.
