The quintessential Kiwi beach-bach has long delivered joy to people who enthusiastically cut a path to the door with a carefree mindset and intent to take a complete breather. Testing elasticity of the rules of what's possible or even imaginable, this wondrous home has an architectural essence shaped over the years by its creative owner and to give his young family a home they love. As an unconventional and sublimely functional home, this is a property poised to cause a click in the hearts of passionate coastal devotees who adore the feel they get from being so close to the ocean. An out-of-towners mecca for holiday stays, hosting unique short-term getaways, suitable for a small family or freedom loving individualists and surfers, this expertly crafted abode is one of a kind. A cohesive spatial richness has been achieved from the successful collaboration of porcelain floor tiles, soft hues of gold, green and pink, ply linings and laminated recycled rimu and birch. These all sit comfortably with the industrial elements of coloured chain-link safety mesh, stainless steel counter tops and natural concrete. With intuitive playful forms rousing the freedom of the ocean, this opened out and unashamedly non-conformist home comprises only of two interior doors and centres on an intimate purpose-built outdoor bathing courtyard. Each room flows from one to the next for family time and socialising whilst the loft master bedroom affords sea views from amidst the feathers. There's plenty of leeway at the front to add a garage if you must, with olive trees and a sunken vegetable and herb garden supplying the kitchen. This delightful home has wraparound basking decks and a back yard utility area to stow the boards and kayaks. Wander down in minutes to the seashore and pick up produce from the Little Big Markets or Domain Road shopping precinct - all of which are so close by foot.
