Private Residence, Mangawhai Heads (work in progress)
BSW is currently completing a private residence project in Mangawhai Heads. The home is designed with two dwelling wings, both situated within the natural environment and sympathetic to the waterway located to the western side. Ensuring cohesion with the site context, the building consists of cedar weatherboards and concrete and perforated metal screens to the seafronts providing privacy for the owners. The home’s use of underground rainwater harvesting highlights BSW’s approach to sustainable architecture. The end result is a home that conveys a rhythmic balance between its various components and a response to the site and northerly seaward hinterland.
