Wooden Wonder: Magnificent compact wooden house is surrounded by the comfort of the mountains, with views of the sea

11 February, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

This compact, yet functional modern house is located on the east coast of the Great Barrier Island in New Zealand, and has absolutely breath-taking views of the sea whilst being surrounded by the comfort of the hills. The black stained wooden slats are very modern in style while the geometric shape adds to an already contemporary feel. One of the main features of this house is the large floor to ceiling glass doors that open the whole house up and break the boundary between the outside and inside. When the house is subject to severe weather, there are wooden panels that shut tight over the glass doors in order to give added protection to the house. Inside, the interior has natural wooden floors and walls, which give the home a warm and inviting feel. Designed by Fearon Hay Architects.
