Whale Bay getaway

More Pacific bure than your typical New Zealand bach this family beach house is perfect but definitely not precious. Kids flung on daybeds and stray sand underfoot, wet swimmers hung over railings and always someone grazing in the fridge. The soft hum of summer insects and memories of returning year after year to a special place. The family's Whale Bay getaway. By Chesire Architects - with initial design undertaken while a director at Jasmax.

Villa Solaire

The renovation by Jérémie Koempgen Architecture and FUGA respects the history of the building while creating a modern luxury holiday villa. By piercing the wooden envelope light is allowed deep within. Like yesterday's Yorkshire barn conversion the home is minimalist, its dark colour scheme referencing traditional dark interiors centred round the hearth. Soaring ceilings and hefty beams are balanced by the clean modern lines of the furniture and fittings.
