Project Type: Residential
Location: Omaha Beach, New Zealand
The word ‘stealth’ comes to mind when approaching this home from a distance, but as one gets closer, the carefully detailed black timber screen slowly reveals its domestic interior and invites one in. A two storey timber bookshelf divides up the two gabled forms with sleeping quarters to the East and living quarters to the West. The proposed internal palette of white solid surfaces and natural oak create spaces that have a sense of lightness and warmth.
