Mahanga Bach

This small off grid bach provides a flexible space for this family of four to enjoy escaping town, hosting friends and hooning around on motor bikes. The yard is used for tenting and play while the building becomes the meeting place to share meals together. At its heart is the large deck, providing adequate shelter from the elements while allowing a connected experience of the land. The corrugate cladding, timber interiors, and exposed trusses honour the agricultural vernacular of the rural Hawkes bay country side.

"This is a marvellous, contemporary example of the traditional New Zealand bach, in which maximum enjoyment of place is derived from a modest budget. The building is an adept architectural response to the need for more permanent provision of service and shelter than the tents previously used on the site. Black corrugated cladding, timber interiors and exposed trusses provide a humble quality to the living areas that are balanced evenly between interior and exterior. Thoughtful detailing of standard building components and custom plywood fixtures and fittings reveal the hand of an adroit architect."
