This dream style beach house is located in New Zealand on Waiheke Island, the site design plays a careful balance between private and public spaces. The sheltered private courtyard is the showpiece of this property. The small but cozy space has been masterfully crafted to connect with the indoor layout. The exterior materials of stone, timber and black steel is a winning combination - giving it a timeless, rustic and approachable feel. This home stands out (not just because of the location) but for the distinct low key and relaxing vibe it creates. People are drawn into the space, this is testament to John Irving’s experience and class as an architect.

I recently designed a new minimal look for a potential Sushi Restaurant, love the graphic simple nature of the design. It could potentially expand into a full scale identity system. The project is purely speculative at the moment.
