Wairau House 1 Stunning Home With Wood and Material Details

Escapism in NA pattern of the rural landscape, the house located in Wairau Valley mixes concrete with wood, unveiling a particularly beautiful home, rich in pavilions and open spaces. The Parsons Architects, the firm responsible with defining this residential project, envisioned a place that emerges with the landscape. The Eucalyptus Saligna wood is very present throughout the house, creating a particular warm feeling of coziness. It’s interesting how concrete and wood complete each other. Everything is carefully balanced and in touch with the nature: “The owners were keen for a house that had a connection to the land spatially and materially. They were interested in occupying the site with a sense of encampment, where different interlinked pavilions offered different areas of occupation and privacy or openness.”

Moreover, the view is breathtaking, enhancing the feeling of relaxation. The social area is supported by glass walls, offering to the inhabitant a full view over the courtyard and the rocky landscape. The house looks like a very summer retreat, with an “industrial-like” look. The swimming pool and the terrace complete the exterior décor. How do you find this house and is this something you would choose for yourself?
