Residential

Alexander House

KAIAUA, AUCKLAND

Originally designed as a collection of forms (with a bed and breakfast studio), the project took cues from the surrounding agrarian vernacular of farm dwellings and the small coastal baches. The project is heavily influenced by the linear planning of Glenn Murcutt, but with a grounded character reminiscent of the Mann House by Ivan Juriss. Rather than sitting lightly, the project attempts to make its own site, its own ground in the some what atopic environment between the land and sea.
