Karekare

Karekare is one of those beaches that clears the head, the power of the waves and the strength of the rock formations leaves anything trivial in its shadows.
It’s a space where you realise your role as an architect in the landscape is not to shout out against the wind, but to provide shelter that respects the land.

There are a few houses set back from the beach along the river that leads to the sea. The Harvey house is one we blogged about here – where you can see photos of the interior – and is a great example of working in such an environment.
