Congratulations to Stacey Farrell of Stacey Farrell Architect, winner of the 2022 TIDA New Zealand Architect New Home of the Year. See more of this distinctive holiday home on a tight budget
Located on New Zealand's rugged South Coast, the windswept site for this small holiday house faces North and gently descends to the dunes.
The low, grounded home is bedded into the landscape, hunkering down from the harsh coastal weather, while materials and colours are deliberately pared back so as not to compete with the natural environment.
The home's two black and brown forms collide, inspired by ocean waves journeying from the distant mountains across the bay and crashing into the shore.
