Scrubby Bay House by Pattersons Associates Architects, Scrubby Bay House New Zealand, South Island architecture, South Island holiday house

Located on a 4,000-acre Annandale farm site, the Scrubby Bay House was designed to look like “a piece of slowly aging farm driftwood” with a timber facade that develops a rich patina over time. Despite its rustic appearance, the beach house boasts a luxurious interior with bespoke furniture, glass, and stone. Large openings frame views of the sea and bring sounds of the waves and cooling winds indoors.
