Scrubby Bay House

This is a robust structure, designed to form the centre piece of a remote, symmetrical and thundering surf beach.

Scrubby Bay House

The residence is sited on one of New Zealand’s iconic coastal sheep and cattle stations and is intended as a farm experience for family groups up to 12 people.

This simple contemporary home on Pigeon Bay is accessed by helicopter from Christchurch Airport, or by farm track.

Scrubby Bay House

This rural NZ house was commissioned by an expatriate New Zealand owner as a base from the where multiple farm and coastal activities can be discovered enjoyed and recovered.

Scrubby Bay House

A vernacular verandahed form belies its massive scale, the apex height is at 5.5 metre and its knee at 3.4 metre in a fully macrocarpa interior, traditionally detailed juxtaposed against black steel fittings.

At the centre of the house is a stone fireplace, constructed from rock quarried from the station.

The building shuts down during storms or when unoccupied and when opened sets up both seaward and leeward exterior environments.

It is conceived of as a piece of slowly aging farm driftwood, in the future stock might come right up to the building.
