Bach, Waiheke Island, New Zealand

project cancelled, 2007

Heath Lowe and Claire Buchanan are fans of Dutch design and the New Zealand landscape. Their house has been designed to use their massive 2d and 3d design collection as architectural elements. The design library and gallery sets up circulation within the house and access to a roof garden as well as views to the magnificent Waiheke Bay. Strict environmental regulations required the design to accomodate rainwater collection and minimal landscape and soil disturbance.
