Bay of Islands, New Zealand
River Retreat is set amongst two acres of gardens and native plantings. It is strategically positioned to capture the best of the tranquil Waitangi river front setting. The client for this residence was a boat builder by trade and this shows in the brilliant craftsmanship that went into the building.
Having designed a building before with the same client, we knew which boundaries could be pushed with the construction.
The result is a beautiful bespoke crafted luxury residence in the Bay of Islands.
