The Bourke House is a beautiful modern home designed by Pacific Environments Architects and located in Matakana, New Zealand. Here is an excerpt form the architects’ project description: “The original family summer cottage relocated to next door made way for a new campsite – conceptual ‘tents’, formed as connected pavilions. Inspired by and embodying intergenerational memories – the essence of long summer holidays, activities, collections, connections and stories. A family retreat, created to both experience (and be protected from) the elements and nature, providing a sustainable fulfilling lifestyle, and maximizing sea-views. The pavilions are linked, forming a protective backing to the central space – the ‘campsite heart’ – as a gathering space, providing comfort, protection and connection with the land and activities. Main pavilion invites relaxation and nourishment, raised to acquaint with the coastal islands. Adjacent is the protective sleeping pavilion being adaptable for experiencing the ambience of the campsite and outlook; or being closed off for privacy.” Freshome readers, how would your perfect summer retreat look like?

    The Outside of this house looks like an old 50′s drive up hamburger stand, maybe even an old gas station. The concrete floors lack personality. The rest is good.

    From the outside, this place looks like it should be a gift shop at some attraction somewhere. The outside is horrible. I love the large roof, but the red poles, ICK.
