GREAT BARRIER HOUSE BY CROSSON CLARK CARNACHAN ARCHITECTS
Great Barrier House was designed by Crosson, Clark, Carnachan Architects. The house sits within a beautifully private setting, surrounded by many trees including Blackwoods and Puriri trees. The building was elevated in order to provide protection against floods.
The living zone opens completely to this setting, and the timber exoskeleton references the surrounding trees. The bedrooms all have protected outdoor space, being closely located to the trees for increased privacy. The house is located to protect the existing vegetation and to make the most of the sun and the native bird life on the property.
