Beach Retreat House New Zealand

On a waterfront site in the Bay of Islands, five separate wings are located to reinforce the natural typography and create a sense of community around the central living area.

Three of the wings are cut deep into the hillside: one of them has the pasture rolling across the roof.

The central wing is identified by the elegant curves of a hyperbolic parabaloid roof which floats over the multiple living areas.
