Ema House by Evelyn Mcnamara Architecture

Ema House

Evelyn McNamara Architecture has completed Ema House, a vacation home located in Waiheke Island, New Zealand.

From the architect: The Ema House is a high-spec architecturally designed holiday home. The brief was to create a modern minimalist design that celebrates the scale of the traditional NZ bach whilst using beautifully crafted materials. The design suits both those wanting a small yet beautifully detailed retreat for themselves or as a rental investment in this surging property market. The detailing is that of a bespoke architecturally designed home, made affordable by scale.
