Under Pohutukawa House by Herbstarchitects
by Ted Savage / September 3, 2011
Via @parq, a house in a strip of forest, in Pohutukawa, New Zealand, is designed to resonate with the trees.


The structure is anchored by two towers, is surfaced with rough-sawn, black-toned wood, set in an irregular pattern, to resemble bark.


The roof of the public space connecting the two towers is supported by "a series of elements that allude to tree trunks and branches, but are detailed with a rigorous geometry suggests a natural order and form as if entering the building." More at Herbstarchitects. Photos: Patrick Reynolds.
