interesting modern exterior design

That Okitu house was built on an island and offers a wonderful view of the coast. And it’s the modern glass house you’ve always dreamed of. Okitu house is a stunning building. It combines a simple one-story construction with luxurious indoor and outdoor spaces that open up to the amazing landscape around. Architect Peter Bossley has received two awards for this masterpiece: the NZIA Local Prize for Architecture 2005 and the NZIA New Zealand Prize for Architecture 2006.

Okitu House – modern design idea from New Zealand

interesting structure and shape of an innovative building

That Coastal home, which is located in Tatapouri-Point, New Zealand overlooks the ocean. To that Okitu house you can watch the beautiful curves of the hills and enjoy an exciting landscape. Low vegetation grows in this place, which mainly colors the landscape in green and yellow. The house itself has small garden areas in the back yard and palm trees near the pool area in the back.

Okitu house has only one soil level that spreads horizontally to the coastline. The design corresponds to the customer’s request, a Coastal home to have for two or more people. The long T-shaped blueprint is the best architectural decision here. It has two components, one can accommodate guests, the other is intended for the homeowner.

The living area is laid out as generous and contains a kitchen, dining room and living room. It opens to the large pool area in the rear. The master bedroom is connected directly to the living area with another smaller bedroom. The rest of the rooms are arranged along the longest part of the building accessed through a hall. This part can remain closed when there are no visitors to the Coastal home gives.

The amazing views revealed through the whole glass facade create a perfect backdrop for the minimalist interior design. The rooms are outlined by the dark columns. The walls and ceilings are painted white. The floors and furniture surfaces were made from elegant, polished timber.
