Remember the image of beautiful and busy village square with the imposing church at its heart and other smaller shops and homes all around it? Attempting to replicate this nostalgic setting and translating it to the contest of the modern home is the gorgeous in Anzac Bay Waiheke New Zealand.
Step in and you see an open plan living area that is seamlessly connected with the covered patio outside. Large glass windows and sliding glass doors a staple in most modern homes these days make their presence felt even as their dark frames anchor spaces filled with neutral hues.
A glass façade is the real show stopper at this modern retreat as it opens up the interior completely to the view outside. You are surrounded by nature completely and it is changing sunlight through the day and the passage of seasons that provide a dynamic colorful and hypnotic backdrop that takes you back into nature’s lap.
Minimal and elegant the house still remains warm and inviting with large sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows bringing the surrounding scenery and Lake Michigan indoors.
