Dramatic response on Auckland’s west coast

The Kaipara Harbour is a dangerous place. It has been the burial ground for a number of ships from the early days of trade and settlement in New Zealand. CCCA has nodded to the region’s rich maritime history with this house. As a response to the site, the house is conceptually a number of upturned hulls nestled in the sand - ‘rusting’ hulks which continue to weather in this harsh coastal environment. Copper cladding is cut away in some areas to reveal the interior of the house, while timber portal framing is reminiscent of early sailing ships. The large scale interior spaces relate to the expansive coastal setting.
