A comfortable space for a large family to congregate during holiday breaks and for its’ owners to retreat to over weekends, was key to the client’s brief. The existing house at Waikanae Beach was poorly laid out and didn’t fully take advantage of its coastal views.


An extensive renovation rationalised the existing bach and integrated a new second storey living area. Designed to invite in views of the beach and Kapiti Island beyond, the high stud allows for natural light to fill the spaces and a connected deck emphasises this new elevated living for the family in the summer months.
