This Northland bach creates a relaxed holiday environment through casual planning and the use of a palette of natural timbers both inside and out. A series of decks provides a number of outdoor opportunities depending on sun and wind allowing most of the living to happen outdoors. Simplicity of design is the key with a single mono-pitch roof floating over the building forms beneath. The garage is akin to a box that slides into the interior of the house, with the variable shiplap cedar cladding carrying through to blur the line between the internal living and the deck.
