* Residential Architecture: Shoal Bay Bach House by Parsonson Architects


Residential Architecture: Shoal Bay Bach House by Parsonson Architects: “..[in] a remote settlement on the rugged east coast of southern Hawkes Bay. The building is designed to be part of the rural setting, it is raised off the ground..formed of two slightly off-set pavilions, one housing the bedrooms and the other the main living space. Decks are located at each end of the living pavilion allowing the sun to be followed throughout the day. Sliding screens at the north-west end provide adjustable shelter for the different wind conditions, offer privacy from neighbouring campers and act as walls for outside sleeping..”  Louvred screens, contextual sensibility, wood interiors, privacy, nature..
