Waterside White House
Designed by Architect Ron Seeto, the existing 2 story bungalow has been transformed into a modernist all white pavilion with projecting flat roof planes and plenty of glass; skylit and a full length window wall fronting Orakei Basin. The interior reflects the "plush minimalism" aesthetic favoured by this architect and found serendipitous synergy with the client - a well known
fashion designer and her champion water skier husband.
An approach walk over a virtual pond of white stones and a hardwood platform floating over a white chip Zen garden edged by a long thin azure lap pool running the length of the rear boundary continues this theme. Featured in NZ House & Garden.
