Conceived by the studio Stevens Lawson Architects and built in the region of Auckland in New Zealand, discovered Karaka Bay House, a beautiful villa built from concrete modules nested inside each other to create different spaces, patios and terraces to unwind and relax. Domestic side, we especially liked the beautiful spiral staircase connecting the three levels vertically. All details in images in the suite!

The design is composed of a collection of interlocking concrete box forms of varying proportions which create a rich variety of interior spaces. A double-height central spine anchors the composition and leads the visitor from land to sea. The stepped cross-section allows natural light to penetrate deep into the house throughout the day. A grand timber-lined spiral staircase connects the three levels vertically, with bedrooms located on upper level, living areas on the mid level and a guest room on the lower level.
The interior of the home is a bit cozier looking than its exterior leads one to believe. The Karaka Bay House by Stevens Lawson Architects is a spacious structure that contains big living spaces, a grand staircase that connects all three levels of the house, guest rooms on the lower levels and main bedrooms on the upper levels.
