Houzz Tour: A Home Nestled in New Zealand’s Coastal Hills

A couple build a modern family home influenced by their Sri Lankan heritage and their stunning new surroundings

Perched up in the heavily forrested hills of Wellington, New Zealand, surrounded by native bushland, is the Korokoro House. This beautiful modern home, with striking facades and stunning views from every angle, was designed by architect Liz Wallace of Tse:Wallace Architects. The project was completed early this year, and was custom-designed for a Sri Lankan couple who were keen to bring the style of their favorite architect, Geoffrey Bawa, to New Zealand. Wallace achieved a Bawa-influenced design with a modern edge, creating a home with large open-plan living spaces and multiple outdoor areas built to suit the family’s lifestyle and their heritage, while complementing the natural landscape.
