Parihoa is a 600 acre farm elevated on the hills between Muriwai and Bethells beaches just one hour from central Auckland, New Zealand.
Patterson Associates designed the contemporary house nestled into the hillside with magnificent panoramic views of the coast.
The four bedroom home spans 6,890 square feet and has been finished in 2009.
Lewis Butler, principal of San Francisco-based studio Butler Armsden Architects, designed the Yolo Cabin for his parents.
Located in Winters, a lush farming town nestled in the Sacramento Valley, California, this modern farmhouse is composed of two sections, a tall water tower, and a lower lean to area.
