Palm Beach Property was designed by Vaughn McQuarrie and is located in Palm Beach, Auckland, New Zealand.
The home is surrounded by lush vegetation, with a lot of windows and terraces to let the outdoors in.
Palm Beach Residence by Vaughn McQuarrie:
“The home is located on a reasonably steep bush covered web site a handful of hundred meters up a valley from the golden sands of Palm Beach Waiheke Island.
Sitting below a big pohutukawa tree the house negotiates the internet site with a series of suspended internal and external spaces connected by external bridges and stairs. The owners of this residence have to step outside in order to circulate from area to area. Due to challenging access and the wish to minimize waste, the style was based around factory sheet sizes which could be carried by hand and directly fixed in spot without having the need to have for cutting. Glue laminated timber was utilised extensively in the framing, when once again carried in by hand and pieced together on site.
A draw bridge allows the home to disengage itself from the ground, providing the occupants a sense of privacy and the feeling of being on a platform up in the trees.”
