Striking modern shelter on Peka Peka Beach

Pekapeka Beach House-01-1 Kind Design

Peka Peka Beach House is a holiday home built by Parsonson Architects as an exploration in how to create a building of both a strong architectural character and economy situated on Pekapeka Beach, New Zealand. The architects used simple modular construction techniques combined with a very simple form. The 1,679 square foot (156 square meters) plan is a rectangle and is divided into three parts, the solid bedroom forms at each end support a floating roof over the living space in between. This layout allows the living room to face both east to the hills and west to the sea. It allows sun into the house throughout the day, for passive solar heating of the concrete slab and creates a sheltered outside space on the east side that still keeps a strong connection to the western sea views.
