Located in a remote bay in the Marlborough Sounds, this house emphasises the intimate qualities of the small bay. Set close to the water it runs along the contour as a two storey primary element incorporating living areas above and guest rooms below.
Linked by a glazed bridge is a main bedroom, raised above the cliff on visually unstable legs to emphasise its eyrie-like relationship to tree tops and sky.
