Mairangi Bay House

Mairangi Bay House

The house sits on a beautiful cliff edge site overlooking the beach and sea, with established trees and a path winding down to the foreshore. The brief required a home that respected these features and made the most of the sun and the outlook, while sheltered from the wind. It was for two people to live in comfortably and still be able to accept family staying at times.

A key design driver was to ensure the view was central to all living spaces and to the main bedroom, and yet create sheltered outdoor living spaces using the building form to provide shelter from the wind blowing in from the sea. The device of the courtyard adjacent to the kitchen works to achieve this, the house wrapping around and opening out towards this space.y d
