A natural wooden house in New Zealand

Fusing architecture and nature, and doing it in a sustainable way and respecting the environment, is a concept that is currently applied by numerous architecture studios. So it is in the case of this natural wood house located in Pohutukawa, New Zealand, and designed by Herbst Architects .

From the outside we can see how the house stands in the middle of a beautiful place full of native trees known as pohutukawa, thanks to which you can enjoy more privacy.

The house, as we see, is a wide space of various heights and glass walls. There is a roof made of wooden beams, a terrace, a very spacious lounge and a sense of decoration completely surrendered to nature.

The interior is dedicated to the voluminous spaces, the height of the roofs and the naturalism of its load-bearing walls and other elements. The idea is that from any corner of the house you can enjoy the natural light and have the feeling, too, of being inside a house on the tree. A pretty big house, yes.

Its spaces are designed for the enjoyment of a rustic-retro style, simple and very fresh. There are also more contemporary decorative elements, giving a more eclectic final style, perhaps a bit extravagant, but striking. The tones of the furniture and other accessories are close to earth tones, a choice that manages to fuse the interior and exterior of the house with great harmony.

In short, a house that draws attention for its bold use of space, connecting in an incredible way the interior spaces with the natural environment that surrounds it, and giving priority to heights.
