Where would I have a vacation home if I could choose and afford anything? HHHmmmmm...I don't know. If I'm going to be that financially blessed I need to do a LOT of traveling before I make that decision. Maybe I'll have vacation homes in several different countries and many different climates and landscapes. I'll have to think on this one, houzz.

Congrats to the Owners AND the Architect(s); Chrissa has done the excellent stuff here!!

Waiheke & Great Barrier Island has given me a lot of wonderful memories of growing up in NZ. Over my few trips to my brothers holiday house - often wondered in early days of the build - will they respect the land and environment's AND build something nice on THIS PALCE. Think am lucky to have grown up in the LUCKY PARTS of this earth

It a very nice surprise to see this article and see the house fully completed and see the Architects do both. Though - was/am puzzled by the 'stainless sink' :P in the ground @ entry - now having read the Questions/Answers section has given me some ideas for my own (pending project on Lake Ontario) .....and use all of my own self-learned lessons from various builds around the globe....

Respect! Nice work and congrats again !

Particularly like the tall louvred doors. Do the open and close? Manually or motorised?
