Matakana Bach House by Pacific Environments Architecture

If you want to have a house on the beach, try to design a house like this. House for a holiday along with the people you love with a spectacular view overlooking the cape off. This is a vacation home concept designed by Pacific Environments Architecture located in Matakana, New Zeland. Although only 3 images displayed by the architect, but I’m sure you can guess the interior design of this house.

Description from the architects :

The Matakana Bach is located on a prominent headland location that offers unsurpassed gulf and harbour views to Kawau Island and beyond. The brief was to design a contemporary and minimal bach (small weekend or vacation house) for weekend use that took advantage of the extensive views and provided a backdrop for a relaxed lifestyle. The result was 2 pavilions (living and sleeping) constructed from concrete, steel and glass.

Visitors navigate through the Pohutakawa grove, past water features and over stepping stones to arrive at the front door and entry foyer which leads into the communal area of the ‘Sleeping’ pavilion. This pavilion concept is based around ‘tent’s and a ‘campfire’ with the bedrooms opening up to a sunken communal space with fireplace. Large sliding doors open this space to the grassed lawn. The 3m stud ‘Living’ pavilion includes kitchen, office and lounge areas that flow onto large deck and a bbq and rockery spa pool area covered by a large cantilevered roof punctured with circular apertures. Large sliding double glazed doors open the living pavilion to connect with the stunning environment.
