A Hilltop Residence By Herbst Architects

Words

On the edge of a hilltop in Auckland, New Zealand sits Clevedon Estate, a minimal home designed by Herbst Architects. Sturdy yet elegant, the filigree-timber-skin residence comprises two pavilions, one housing a pool and the other serving as both a garage and an office space. In the middle of the courtyard, a tree grows through a gap in the roof, stretching towards the sky.
