Storm Cottage is positioned on Wonderful Barrier Island, New Zealand and was designed by Fearon Hay Architects.
With the jagged lines of its architecture and the deep black color of its outer walls, Storm Cottage stands out greatly from its green and rugged surroundings.
Storm Cottage by Fearon Hay Architects:
“Located on the east coast of Fantastic Barrier Island – a black rough sawn timber box sits hunting north to the sea.
The dark exterior palette is completed with a layer of perforated metal screens. This operable layer makes it possible for the moderation of light / air and protection both when occupied and alone. Internally walls and floors are clad with oiled oak boards that provide a warm counter to its robust exterior.
The programme supplies for a pair of symmetrical bedrooms and ensuites set about a central living space.
Care has been produced to limit the scale of the constructing and keep a sense of ‘cottage’.
The constructing is off the grid, powered by solar panels independent systems for water collection and remedy.
This is a retreat that offers shelter, warmth and comfort to engage with the wilderness and isolation of the remote setting.”
