Within a suburban context of complexity of form and materials the palette for this house was kept deliberately muted and limited. The emphasis of the sculptural enclosure was on protecting and revealing the functional nodes of the dwelling. The form controls and celebrates the environmental conditions and is arranged around the rituals of new zealand beachfront living. The house is designed to be self-contained amid a cluttered suburban backdrop with outlooks carefully limited to focus on the beach and adjoining reserve. Detail focused on the pacific rim tradition of timber framed construction, using the same material, cedar, in a variety of methodologies, to produce different qualities of space, opacity and transparency.

Omaha Spit has also been identified by the Department of Conservation as a “significant breeding site for the endangered New Zealand dotterel. As a result The Omaha Shorebird Protection Trust was established in 2009 to monitor the dotterel population at Omaha.
