The Rothesay Bay House is a modern dwelling in Auckland, New Zealand, with a refined wooden exterior and a fancy modern interior. Designed by Creative Arch, it was built on its existing groundwork structure to save resources and to focus on recycling and harming the environment as little as possible.

Wood is the main material used throughout the home, complementing the contemporary unpretentious design.

“A combination of cedar shiplap vertical and horizontal, metal cladding and plaster, have been used combined with low lying roofs help to break up the building’s form. Working with the existing parameters and layered approach, has resulted in a modern home that rests comfortably between neighbouring high and low properties on a cliff top site”.
