Seascape House by Patterson & Associates
Situated at Whitehead Bay, on the tip of the Banks Peninsula, the Seascape House is a secret refuge nestles in the edge of a hill, enveloped by the eerie silence and glorious scenery of New Zealand’s most exquisite coast farm.

Built using all local materials, this building houses a one-bedroomed studio that boasts a living roof, stone walls and a neutral interior, and organized with geometric perfection to make the most of the views outside the glass façade.
Inspiration from architect:
Self sustainable in respect to on-site water harvesting and wastewater treatment, it sits on the waters edge among existing rock outcrops. This romantic hideaway is intended as a place to observe the nature, yourself and the raging ocean storms.
