Rahimoana Villa in New Zealand


Rahimoana Villa in New Zealand

Rahimoana is the pre-eminent residential property in Australasia and this 46 acre estate epitomizes the lifestyle safe haven in a first world subtropical South Pacific paradise. The dramatic isolation of the site afforded unrestricted openness in design, allowing a seamless connection with the exterior, taking up 360° views of the landscape.

The temple like pavilion sits long and low on the site; simplicity is key: the knife-edge roof is cantilevered from slender steel posts, and anchored to a masonry spine that continues through to the sub floor. The plinth both elevates the house to the views, and permits access to concealed services below.

A sheltered courtyard provides refuge from the elements when required, with an open fire and access to kitchen and other service areas: the gym, bedrooms and bathrooms.

Rahimoana, meaning ‘sun god over the sea’, reflects and embraces the views, the horizon and the sea with a delicate simplicity of form, structure and materials.

Designed by Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects. Price 55 000 000 NZD New Zealand Dollar.

Inspiring? For Shawn Penoyer Interiors it is obvious source of inspiration.
