Hamish Monk Architecture created this modern residence for a client in Auckland, New Zealand. The brief was for a new house on a challenging to seek out a quiet architectural expression, one that is devoid of excessive articulation and noise; a silent witness to its surroundings. The aim of the project was to create a quietly elegant structure that would not upset its surrounding environment. From the point of entry the house offers a range of spatial experiences across the width of the floor plate; transitioning from a hunkered almost subterranean position in the landscape to an elevated position perched in the tree canopy.
