To understand this house, you must read between the lines. The lines of the boardwalk leading to the front door hint at the excellent views of Te Awarua-o-Porirua Harbour hidden on the other side. The horizontal lines of the shuttered concrete wall in the central living area passively absorbs solar energy and distributes the warmth […]
