Okura Property is positioned in North Shore, Auckland, New Zealand, and was designed by Bossley Architects.
The spacious property has many outdoor locations that appear out to the vast rolling hills that surround it, enabling for a pleasant view from the warmth and comfort of the striking structure.
Okura Residence by Bossley Architects:
“Designed for a sensitive ridge in rolling countryside, this residence was depressed 3 metres into the current ridgeline to minimise influence on the sea views from the neighbouring websites.
Two separate buildings, linked by screens and lightweight roof, define the entry and pool region and aid minimise the overall visual bulk. The major living wing has a central section of concrete walls and earth roof to replicate the original ridge when viewed from afar. From this ‘grounded’ element radiate the floating roof over the living areas, and a separate bedroom wing which cantilevers drastically more than the falling land.”
