You may have noticed that I’m just a tad partial to New Zealand architecture and design, and this post may go some way in explaining why I am so enamoured with architecture and interior design in New Zealand.
Firstly, their use of natural materials like timber and stone is renowned, and part of this is due to the fact that there are no termites in New Zealand (not the damaging kind at least. Did I mention they don’t have snakes either? Triple bonus!!) but in addition to this, they also have a burgeoning sustainable forestry industry, so building with wood makes total environmental and economical sense.
Secondly, I have found that architecture in New Zealand is highly creative and often incorporates a multitude of international influences, that when combined with their use of natural materials in a modern way, makes for some stunningly beautiful homes and creative licence.
An architecture firm I discovered not too long ago is that of Christian Anderson Architects, based in Ponsonby, Auckland (another one of my favourite places in New Zealand), and they have designed some of New Zealands most spectacular homes.
I don’t think I need to go on too much more as the pictures below really speak for themselves. Feel free to ‘Pin’ away if you like! They are absolutely worth it in my eyes. To view more of their work you can click here.
