The design of this Waiheke house was based around 3 distinct courtyard areas which provide protection from the predominant winds and provide zones for contemplation and

socialising. Views were an important consideration as the site is adjacent to a vineyard and looks down towards 3 bays.

This addition to a classic modernist 1960’s house by Vlad Cacala sought to leave the original intact while fulfilling the changing needs of the owners. The design was conceived as a separate form touched down next to the original house with a section of the original conceptually recreated within the addition.

A stand of Nikau, an idyllic private bay and a building platform defined by ridges either side set the architectural program of the design of this family beach house. The concept evolved from the idea of a family group camping, creating space between the functional nodes. This was particularly important in allowing space for the boats and water to move through the valley to the bay below. This space was utilised to give physical separation to the guest house. It was important to activate the spaces around the house giving a progression to enjoy. From the lawn overlooking the sea soaking up the morning light, to the private courtyard, framed by the Nikau grove, catching the last rays in the evening whilst enjoying the out- door fire.

A ridge stretching between the Hauraki Gulf and the pastoral landscape of Waiheke Island provided a stunning, and challenging, context in which to design a home. Our approach was to work within the contour of the ridge, as an attempt to minimise the impact on the

landscape. The plan form of the house is spaced between two courtyards, which are bridged by a gabled roof stretched across the long axis. The courtyards provide the op-

portunity to shelter from either of the two dominant winds.The materiality of the house

draws on two architectural conditions of Waiheke, the masonry forms were inspired by the gun emplacements of Stoney Batter. The use of cedar and plywood reflect precarious weekenders of the island’s past.
