This green architecture building was built around a central spine, set on the hills above the ocean. It is oriented to the ocean to maximize the view, also to maximize the sun light capturing. The location was chosen, 2 1/2 hours outside of Auckland, to provide a peaceful environment. It has open plan living areas, combined with kitchen and dining room, flowing out seamlessly onto a generous northern open deck. There is also an alternative sheltered space with bbq and outdoor fireplace, to the north-west. More private places are provided for the bedrooms, including the using of shutters for the privacy protection.
