Waterfall Bay House by Bossley Architects

By Magaly Grosso


Updated on

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.”

  1. Gorgeous, comfy looking home. How lucky the homeowners are to have the opportunity to reside in such a near-perfect setting. That floating stairway; the window framed, giant fern vignette; and the endless seasonal views. And – a nod of gratitude for looking back over their shoulder at F. L. Wright’s iconic Kauffman House (Fallingwater). It is the inspiration for a home like this – – – complete with the stream and waterfall running UNDER the cantilevered home – with a glassed-in stair entry port looking directly down onto the natural water feature.
