Herriot Melhuish O’Neill Architects has designed a house located in Peka Peka, New Zealand. Called Peka Peka House II, this Kapiti Coast beach house completed in 2015 measures 275m² (2,960ft²).
Our brief was to provide the best of indoor and outdoor living, hence the decision to position the house opening out onto a sheltered internal courtyard protected from the prevailing coastal winds. Clad in two contrasting cedar weatherboard profiles, the main house sits on one side of a glade of native trees, while a separate sleep-out provides protection and privacy from neighbours.
