Tutukaka House

30 August 2012

To combat the strain and stress of modern life, a family in New Zealand has built itself a vacation home in the highest part of the North Island. Tutukaka House. Designed by architect Ken Crosson of the Crosson Clarke Carnachan studio, the house has been laid out in such a way as to offer a splendid view of the ocean from the bedrooms. Built entirely of regionally-sourced wood (Eucalyptus saligna and kwila), it has openings in the roof that let in natural light, in addition to what enters through the windows, protected by shutters that filter the sun’s rays. A corner of paradise in one of the most sparsely inhabited places on Earth. You can’t help but be green with envy. (via Dezeen)

She has been writing about furniture for twenty years and is still not tired of it, in spite of everything. She has no free time, and is not even interested in it. For her it’s enough not to have to go to the same office everyday. She mixes with unlikely people, and contributes to Klat for this very reason.
