Storm Cottage is positioned on Great Barrier Island, New Zealand and was made by Fearon Hay Architects.

With the jagged lines of its architecture and the deep black color of its outer walls, Storm Cottage stands out significantly from its green and rugged surroundings.


Storm Cottage by Fearon Hay Architects:

“Located on the east coast of Fantastic Barrier Island – a black rough sawn timber box sits searching north to the sea.

The dark exterior palette is completed with a layer of perforated metal screens. This operable layer makes it possible for the moderation of light / air and protection the 2 when occupied and alone. Internally walls and floors are clad with oiled oak boards that supply a warm counter to its robust exterior.

The programme offers for a pair of symmetrical bedrooms and ensuites set about a central living area.

Care has been created to limit the scale of the building and keep a sense of ‘cottage’.

The building is off the grid, powered by solar panels independent techniques for water collection and therapy.

This is a retreat that gives shelter, warmth and comfort to engage with the wilderness and isolation of the remote setting.”
