From the architect. The property is located in the Marlborough Sounds, which is at the north end of the South Island of New Zealand. It is accessible by 4 wheel drive vehicle and boat from the nearest township Picton.

Itis a holiday house for extended family and sits on a west facing bush clad hillside Apple Bay.

We intended to create a delicate platform amongst trees for life to unfold. The house is in two parts, each with a fine roof that follows the slope of the land. The upstairs living areas are configured as a large elongated space with decks at each end to enjoy both the morning and afternoon sun and with retreat and service spaces serving these. Downstairs bedrooms float amongst the trees with windows opening across the tree tops. The gap and junction between the two building parts is a continuation of the path up from the boat house.

A modern retreat that&#39s decidedly off the beaten path - http://t.co/sE8tx3RQ - a pity that it&#39s only used as a holiday home :0(
