Waterfall Bay House is located in a remote bay in the Marlborough Sounds at the north of the South Island of New Zealand and was designed by Bossley Architects.

The wood that pervades the home seems to respond to the lush forest that surrounds it, creating a comfortable and pleasant relationship.

Waterfall Bay House by Bossley Architects:

“Located in a remote bay in the Marlborough Sounds, this house emphasises the intimate qualities of the small bay. Set close to the water it runs along the contour as a two storey primary element incorporating living areas above and guest rooms below.

Linked by a glazed bridge is a main bedroom, raised above the cliff on visually unstable legs to emphasise its eyrie-like relationship to tree tops and sky.”
