Forest House by Fearon Hay Architects (1)

Forest House was completed this year by NZ-based Fearon Hay Architects. Set at the foot of the Waitakere Ranges, the Forest House is a collection of timber clad, gabled structures. They slip past each other, opening spaces for courtyards, cooking and fire. Exterior shells of native timber boards and shingle roof are founded over cast in situ concrete masses, bracketing the interior spaces within and adding a weight and strength to the voluminous interiors.
