Text description provided by the architects. Designed as a refuge from the frenetic city lives of the owners, the Tutukaka House provides relaxed holiday living.

The plan is organised around a central spine, with spaces orientated to specific views. The open plan living area flows seamlessly onto a generous northern open deck to the view, and an alternative sheltered space with bbq and outdoor fireplace, to the north-west. The bedrooms are in contrast more protected, with shutters that lift up to provide protection from summer sun, maintaining cooler temperatures.

Materials are primarily timber, with stained shiplap cladding and plywood linings. Exposed structure is saligna, and flooring is kwila. Translucent elements are used in parts of the roof and cladding, introducing a delicate light quality to the circulation space and outdoor fire area.

The house closes down with the use of sliding panels and hinged shutters, ensuring security is maintained when not in use.
