Ever imagined what heaven looks like? Maybe just a little bit like New Zealand. And when the scenery is so spectacular then Te Kaitaka, a retreat located on the shores of beautiful Lake Wanaka in the South Island is the perfect design solution. Inspired by folded paper it is by architects Stevens Lawson. Te Kaitaka has just been announced as NZ Home of the Year, the third win by Stevens Lawson. Their's is a quest in design to respect the site, to explore the genius loci and the cultural values. "Architecture of humanism and spirit." So true.
(Thanks Sammy for the link and there is one more fabulous award winning house after the jump.)
And then I just couldn't leave it alone. If Te Kaitaka is a slice of heaven then what do we call this fabulous Onetangi home down on the bay? Sweet? I think so!
