BAY OF ISLANDS

MAHINEPUA

No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it. Hill and house should live together each the happier for the other.
~ Frank Lloyd Wright

With a 360 degree vista this home sits perched on the top of the hill overlooking Mahinepua Bay.  Majestic views shaped the design that nestles into the crest with a roof form that mimics the landform around it. Multiple large windows and doors open to provide indoor/outdoor connection and nesting areas sheltering the occupants from the elememts.
