Architects: Patterson Associates
Location: Waiheke Island, New Zealand

Patterson Associates have created this Summer residence on beautiful Waiheke Island, New Zealand, Waiheke is famous for its fine vineyards and wine. The house is located on a steep coastal escarpment above a tree fringed white sand beach.

The home uses the same local pyrite rock strata responsible for the quality of the vines, to create Architecture.

The rock mass forms a bridge to exploit both the sea frontage and sunlight. Under this, a living area nestles into the landscape contrasting a spacious ocean-front terrace to the East with a grotto-like western courtyard. Bedroom areas are grouped above as finely scaled louvred lookouts in the canopy line of the trees.

The building uses its materiality to compliment and reflect the beauty of its setting. Andrew Patterson’s strategy is that its occupants will feel the same way.
