Tucked away on the shores of the New Zealand coastline, is this beachside house, designed by Patterson Associates. The house is nestled into the Banks Peninsula, hidden among the hills, with it’s own little private beach and cove to enjoy. The cottage has been built using local materials, like the rock that was quarried near its site. There is also on-site water harvesting and wastewater treatment. Large floor-to-ceiling windows provide the perfect opportunity to enjoy the natural surroundings all day long. The holiday home, which can be rented, has just three rooms, a lobby, a living/sleeping area and a bathroom.
