Under Pohutukawa in Piha, New Zealand
The site with which the architect were presented was extremely challenging in that it was 90% covered in mature pohutukawa trees, the site being a part of a continuous belt of forest that edges the road along the beach front. The circumstances not so much allowed, but dictated a sensitive poetic response to a building that, in order to exist would require the destruction of a large number of mature trees. To do this the architect looked to the trees themselves to give them the cues that they needed.
This bach is nestled exquisitely under and around a dense Pohutukawa grove near the beach. The architecture takes inspiration and form from the trees, yet is self-assured and confident within such a rich environment. Beautifully detailed, using the finest materials, this is an open and relaxed pavilion that encourages its inhabitants to dwell luxuriously beneath the canopy.
