* Residential Architecture: Island Retreat by Fearon Hay Architects with Penny Hay

Residential Architecture: Island Retreat by Fearon Hay Architects with Penny Hay: “..An arrangement of freestanding structures around a sheltered central courtyard rests in a saddle above Matiatia Bay (on New Zealand’s Waiheke Island). The natural undulations of the saddle have been subtly emphasized to form a natural setting for three roofed structures and freestanding raised pool. Inspiration for the site came from a study of lightweight, canopy- like structures, tensioned to the ground plane. Draped roof planes are tensioned to the surrounding landscape over interior and exterior spaces..”  Lovely site; expansive glazing, abundant natural light, views, indoor / outdoor sensibility; materials sensibility in both architecture and interior decoration..
