Kumutoto Bay

Photographer: Paul McCredie


Accessible by boat only, this family bach provides permanent accommodation to replace years of holiday camping in the bush. Planning responds to past camp life with communal living and private sleeping areas. The ceiling and floors are carefully shaped and punctuated with openings to interpret and reveal the forest surroundings. Materials were chosen for their soft, natural palettes and seamlessly detailed for consistency of space, allowing the variance and beauty of the bush surroundings to inform the new inhabitation.
