Here is a home by Stevens Lawson Architects with an original and highly interesting architecture overlooking Browns Island in the Waitemata Harbour, New Zealand. Even though its exterior is certainly unique, the first impression when looking at this home is definitely not one of comfort or coziness. But don’t let the gray concrete fool you. As one steps inside, the perspective changes in an unexpected and pleasant way. A beautiful and stylish timber staircase connects the interiors. Its spiral shape has a dynamic effect on the overall interior design and is complemented by an elegant timber handrail. Karaka Bay House has a total of three floors which house the bedrooms on the upper level, the living areas situated on the middle floor and a guest room below. Large windows allow this home to be bathed in light and create an intense and inviting atmosphere.
