New Build | Carterton, Wairarapa
A new courtyard house to be built on an exposed rural site. The house makes use of verandahs and walkways to provide shade from summer heat and create spaces sheltered from the strong winds. The house is made up of a series of pavilions and walkways, together with a tower, which combine to form a sheltered courtyard as an oasis from the larger landscape outside. Views are created through the house and out to the gardens, distant farmland and the Tararua ranges.
