Nominated as one of the 16 best private homes built between the years of 2007 to 2008, the incredible Mai Mai House is modern architecture at its finest.
The home itself was designed by the Aukland based architecture firm at Patterson Associates and resides within Auckland, New Zealand. The architect describes the naming of the home below.
“The name of the house has more than one interpretation. For New Zealand Maori, ‘Mai’ can mean clothing, but it can also signify the verb ‘to bring towards me’. ‘Mai Mai’ is the New Zealand name for the makeshift blinds in which duck hunters ambush their prey.”
The exterior of the house has been described as camouflage which tells the story of the occupants. During the day the white feathered cloak provides privacy, while at night it provides a massive screen for images to be projected onto. The home was built back in 2008, and features two bedrooms and two bathrooms making it the perfect size for a couple.
