Chris wanted to capture the back-to-basics simplicity of a camping holiday when he designed his Tent House on Auckland’s Waiheke Island.
The tent-like structure of the house responds to those restrictions in a daring and dynamic way. The sharply raking ridge-line and soaring soffit reference the tent experience in an architecturally elegant way.
Overall, the Tent House is an embodiment of the complex rendered simple and the modest rendered sublime.
