Pauanui Vice sits on a wide elbow site at the extreme edge of the Pauanui waterways in the Coromandel. Clients wanted a refined executive residence that could function like a Bach. The low slung 1950s Modernist structure was born.
“Adam was firstly a wonderful listener, and respectful of the vision and ideas that we presented to him, in order to begin designing our special family meeting place in Pauanui. But he also transported us out of our comfort zone into a modern, minimalist, floating beach house that now attracts constant drive-by attention. The brief to provide a sophisticated but simple space for three generations to enjoy holidays and celebrations in, has been truly met and exceeded. Our first Christmas in the house gave us the opportunity to experience and embrace Adams design – to completely open up the common living areas into one magnificent indoor-outdoor space, and appreciate the beautiful harbour and mountain views. Thank you from all of our family for creating a wonderful setting where memories can be made.”
