A great living space project which called Korora house is completed designed by the Daniel Marshall Architects. This living space project is completed designed in Waiheke, New Zealand. A stunning and challenging context in which to design a home is provided by a ridge which is stretching between the Hauraki Gulf and the pastoral landscape of the Waiheke Island. Work within the contour of the ridge as an attempt to minimize the impact on the landscape is the architect approachment. Which are bridged by a gabled roof stretched across the long axis, the plan form of the house is spaced between the two courtyards. The courtyard itself provides the opportunity to shelter from either of the two dominant winds. The materiality of the house is draws on the two architectural conditions of Waiheke and the masonry shapes are inspired by the gun emplacements of the Stoney Batter. The precarious weekenders of the island’s past are reflected by the usement of the cedar and the plywood.
This living space design is precisely perched on hills, and above the hills is appear a wide sea. It’s beautiful scenery there. The house is designed to have a large sliding door and large glass window; it is to maximize the functional of the environment panoramic view. The edge of this living space is designed from the stucco, very unique. In the outer space, precisely on the space between stair, the shell is replaced the common stone decoration which is usually used as the decoration. The large wooden deck is facing directly to the sea, from here, amazing scenery can be found. Near the living space deck is also placed the long swimming pool. In several space inside the house, the chosen marble floor is select for its materials, adds the elegance and comfortable atmosphere. Nice!
