Architecture: Memory Rock On Great Barrier Island In New Zealand

ArchiPro – This unique beach house was thoughtfully inspired by Medlands Beach where it is situated on Aotea (Great Barrier Island).

The long curving shoreline is punctuated by a large, weathered rock to its centre. This informed the architectural composition with a low, long, horizontal form complemented by a taller, denser, two-level element to the centre. It is a confident design with a direct relationship to site and context.

This metaphorical design response flowed through to the materials, with textured, “sandy” plaster and light-coloured timber for the interior walls, textured bronze fixtures (cast in sand) and vertical cedar cladding, mimicking the bullrush reeds in the adjacent wetland.
