Under Pohutukawa Residence

The Pohutukawa tree is found in New Zealand and its crimson flower has long been part of the Christmas tradition. The house received its name because of its location around a dense Pohutukawa grove near the beach. The architects did an outstanding job mirroring the interior design, materials and the structure of the house to the complex form of the surrounding Pohutukawa trees.

I really enjoy architecture that relates to nature. My current favourite so far – from the little I know about organic/natural architecture – has got to be Harvey Oshatz – here’s his link if you want to take a look at some of his designs: (yes the site is bad)

My personal favourite is The Wilkinson Residence.

Beautiful home. This is very close to what I would build and live in, including the Falcon chairs! Thanks for sharing.
