Sited upon a gentle west facing slope on Waiheke Island, this design looks to place three distinct blocks under one roof. Designed as 2 stage project (1st - living block and bedroom/ablution block, 2nd - master bedroom and ensuite block) each block is separated by spaces that allow the site to puncture the bulk of the house which in turn lightens it's mass. Patio and deck spaces that hug the ground line are located along the north and west faces giving occupants opportunity to move out into the landscape from various parts of the house.
