Completed in 2010, this one,507 square foot contemporary home is located on Waiheke Island in Auckland, New Zealand.
Park Stage Residence by Vaughn McQuarrie:
“The home is located at the Western end of Waiheke Island. The internet site is exposed as a result the house wraps about a central outdoor area defending it from the prevailing winds. Views within rooms frame attributes of the web site and its surroundings, wind swept native bush, islands in the Gulf, a massive Puriri tree, the open sea.
A concrete slab and concrete block walls soak up winter sun. The roof overhang protects from the harsh summertime sun and a retractable external louvre controls overheating and glare from the low western sun. The roofline is influenced by the outlying islands visible from the web site.”
