“Architectural Designer Adam Taylor’s concept for this family retreat was to be low-slung and modernist and to look as if it were floating on its little peninsula – Tairua Harbour is on one side and canals on the other. The house celebrates its spectacular location with floor-to-ceiling glass that frames the water on two sides along with views of the Pauanui hills.”
