2022 Nelson/Marlborough Architecture Awards Winner
Honeymoon Bay Bach
This deeply shaded pocket handkerchief of a site, backed by a cliff and subject to local resident committee approval, required a brave design approach. By cleverly stretching the envelope vertically, the architect has assigned the entire ground footprint to living and decking and squeezed two bedrooms and ablutions above. A cleverly cropped-back main bedroom floor allows the sun to flood into the living room beneath, making this intimate, simple and well-resolved bach feel surprisingly spacious.
