Bach on Great Barrier Island small holiday house

The latest Herbst Architects project, in their series of baches (small holiday retreats) on Great Barrier Island continues to explore the relationship of the building to the natural environment. Their ability to perfectly nestle a house into its environment and leverage the site’s natural assets is amazing. As their bevy of Great Barrier Island houses grows, they have created a new vernacular, of lightweight raw wood and gabions from local stones. via
