A great place to curl up. I've always dreamed of having an indoor library as a room in my future home. Comfy chairs, coffee table, shelves upon shelves of books, open backyard window, NO tv in that room.
This design is crazy, I love all the natural light, and the wall of windows that appears to lead to a greenhouse. The stairs being right above the kitchen is very cool, that's something I have seen very few times.
This would make a beautiful kitchen/dining/living space. Phase - Window walls on east and south. Kitchen on north and east. Dining/island tall enough for extra prep space. Living room area in east end.
Under Pohutukawa is an award-winning beach house designed by Herbst Architects. It was recently honoured as Home NZ Magazine's Home of the Year, The design is a breathtaking open-concept living space with beautiful wood finishings throughout.
