Mid Century Modern | Waterfall Bay House

The Waterfall Bay house was designed by Bossley Architects is located in a remote bay in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand. This stunning mid century inspired house emphasises the intimate qualities of the small bay. It's set close to the water it runs along the contour as a two storey primary element incorporating living areas above and guest rooms below - the main bedroom is linked by a glazed bridge.

The building is well connected to its environment, fitting comfortably within the tree tops, water and sky. It's remote location emphasises how bespoke and difficult it would have been to produce. It has a timeless, calming presences that will give years of pleasure to its owners.

It was also featured in BBC2 The World's Most Extraordinary Homes: Season 1: Episode 3: Coast
