House of the Week 64: House on Takapuna Clifftop

The residence was designed for a patron of the arts on top of a cliff in the coastal suburb of Takapuna, New Zealand by architect Pip Cheshire whilst at Jasmax prior to setting up his own firm. Despite the limited palette of materials and the sedated expression of the form, the language of the architecture boasts a pedigree in a home that is both rich and complex, dually fort-like yet open.

thanks Carl Douglas for the correction

Small note: the Congreve House was designed by Pip Cheshire, but he did it while working for Jasmax, before he started Cheshire Architects.
