Located in Pekapeka Beach, New Zealand, the holiday house – Pekapeka House is designed by Parsonson Architects. The Pekapeka House was an exploration in how to create a building of both a strong architectural character and economy.
Parsonson Architects have used simple modular construction techniques combined with a very simple form. The plan is a rectangle and is divided into 3 parts, the solid bedroom forms at each end support a floating roof over the living space in between.
This layout allows the living room to face both east to hills and west to the sea. It allows sun into the house throughout the day, for passive solar heating of the concrete slab and creates a sheltered outside space on the east side that still keeps a strong connection to the western sea views.
