House Oriented In Two Directions But Protected From Neighbors

House Oriented In Two Directions But Protected From Neighbors

Northland House was designed by Parsonson Architects to sit high enough and overlook Wellington Harbor in New Zealand. It is oriented in two directions, east to the harbor and hills beyond and west to the afternoon sun. From the street, the house peers strictly over the protective inner courtyard wall, while the interior feels very open and connected to the outside. Patterns of surface materials are loosely influenced by the land carpet seen from the sky. The flooring and decking change in material and texture when they run from the west courtyard to the living room to the west deck. The wings of the plan focus the views either to the east or to the west and close the house to the neighbors to the north and south. {Parsonson Architects}
