A local island just off of the coast of New Zealand might be imagined as running rampant with indigenous plant life, yurts, wild life and not a whole lot to it. Patterson Associates Architects changes that vision of the Waiheke Island with their “Local Rock House.”
The residence utilizes local rocks (hence the name) to belong in its setting and help the residents feel the same. An intimate living area, rock mass bridge and grotto style courtyard are all amazing elements of this rustic home. Bedrooms provide privacy with lookout areas and cantilevered upper terraces. With beach access, this rock home can do no wrong.
