New Zealand Holiday Home from Dwell Magazine

Arrival at the Yates holiday home at Maramaratotara Bay.
Recently Dwell magazine (USA) profiled some New Zealand holiday homes and the images above is of one that was published in July/August of this year. Designed and inhabitated by architect, Amanda Yates, this home was built for her parents and the following generations. Set in the stunning location of Maramaratotara Bay, this home embraces the landscape and lets it dictate the architectural language. To see more great photos by Matthew Williams and read the article by Jeremey Hansen (editor of Home NZ magazine), go here.

I have the Dwell mag this was featured in and kept gawking at the photos. What a beautiful space. Love the sloping hill that kisses the walls. What a great way to be with nature. New Zealand is a perfect place for this.
