Coromandel Bach by Crosson Clarke Carnachan

The Crosson Clarke Carnachan architects intended to reinterpret the New Zealand building tradition through the Coromandel Bach, emphasizing on the craftsmanship of wood as an expression of structure, cladding, lining and joinery in a raw and unique way. Heavy vertical structural members support the horizontal boarding, unadorned natural timber which is a sustainable and renewable resource provides a connection to nature. The deck is wide open, providing the perfect stage for living, simple just like the house’s rectangular plan that sits across the contour in a patch of cleared bush. The living room is open to the outside and the sun while the bunkrooms are enclosed and cool and an open bathroom and movable bath makes showering and bathing as an experience that’s connected to nature.
