This contemporary single storey farm-house, a re-interpretation of the 'NZ
farm shed vernacular, is designed as a series of pavilions linked by a
circulation spine with small courtyards between. Rustic cladding and simple
mono-pitched roof lines combine to preserve the rural feel. Sited with the main
glazing to the north, it captures the sun and majestic views of the Waikato River
valley. lts many sustainable features reinforce the impression of a building
designed to be at one with its environment.
