Island Retreat Fearon Hay Architects

Auckland-based architectural firm Fearon Hay Architects has designed the Island Retreat on Waiheke Island, New Zealand. Island Retreat by Fearon Hay Architects: "An arrangement of freestanding structures around a sheltered central courtyard rests in a saddle above Matiatia Bay. The natural undulations of the saddle have been subtly emphasized to form a natural setting for three roofed structures and freestanding raised pool. Inspiration for the site came from a study of lightweight, canopy- like structures, tensioned to the ground plane. Draped roof planes are tensioned to the surrounding landscape over interior and exterior spaces." Photos by: Patrick Reynolds
