The Okitu House designed by Pete Bossley is resides in a location that people dream about. This beach beauty is located on a ridge above the east coast with spectacular views from Poverty Bay right round to Tatapouri Point in New Zealand.
The beach house is designed in a way that could either accommodate an extended family or even make it feel comfortable if just two of them were home. To facilitate this, the T-shaped plan of the house has essentially two wings, one of which could be closed down. It also has a sheltered outdoor area protected from the easterly and nor-easterly winds but still very much connected to the view through the transparent living wing. The landscaping and terracing extend horizontally from the house to ground, the house to the site and also to create a series of layered exterior spaces.
