This small holiday bach looks over the dune tops to the Esplanade Reserve in Waikanae. It was designed for a family who have owned the property for more than 30 years. An uninsulated 2 storey cabin was altered, insulated, reclad and extended. We were keen not to add to the collection of existing suburban houses here, but to build closer to the spirit of a bach, to create a dwelling that is playful, low key, relaxed and that deals practically with the unique conditions of the locality. A holiday home to enjoy all year round.
