Our summer issue is on sale now, featuring five beautiful houses around Aotearoa perfect for slowing down – helped, of course, by our summer playlist by none other than Charlotte Ryan, which you can access via a QR code in each story.
On the cover: a delightful pool project in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland by Lloyd Hartley Architects. With neighbours close by, it's is designed to create a private suburban oasis – a bit, as Mike Hartley says, like diving into a rocky lake.
Elsewhere! We visit a home in the bush at Anawhata crafted by Paul Davidson, while Pac Studio and Steven Lloyd design a delightful pink house inspired by the tropics. We check out a house behind a brick wall in Raglan by Georgia Peacocke of Edwards White Architects, and a trio of off-grid cabins in Waipara by Johnstone Callaghan Architects. And, we check out a compound-style house at Matapōuri by RTA Studio.
But wait! There's more! We also check out the hand-turned work of Otis Studio's Jack Schicker, visit Peter Lange's studio as he moves out and visit Aigo, a noodle bar in Ponsonby, Tāmaki Makaurau by the greatly talented David Lee. Rafe Maclean transforms a house in Wānaka with the addition of just one small room, Martin Bosley cooks snapper and Tim Grocott of Taus Ceramics gets a new view.
