If you didn’t know, we have a soft spot for outstanding architecture. Today we get a look at a stunning structure dubbed the Black Quail House. The home is located on a rocky hillside in New Zealand, boasting a unique design that is influenced and inspired by the area’s history and vernacular. The house is nestled into a rugged landscape that is similar to the stone miner’s huts settled into the nearby valley.
Formed from concrete and boasting a uniquely weathered steel facade, the home seemingly blends into the terrain while glazing opens the house to the outdoors. The home features glazing on the rear elevation that opens the contemporary interior to views of the river and the family vineyard. Sliding glass doors further connect the interior of the home to the great outdoors, opening to a series of outdoor courtyards that are sheltered from the winds while immersed in the dramatic scenery.
Take a closer look at the stunning home in the images below and find out more about the design from Bergendy Cooke. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more outstanding architecture coming very soon.
