With summer right around the corner, we’re fantasizing about sun, surf, and beach shacks—specifically the New Zealand bach. Pronounced "batch," a Kiwi bach is essentially a traditional beach house. Unpretentious and unfussy, they’re meant to be accessible to all and represent a nostalgic, summertime state of mind. The humble beach homes below hail from New Zealand and beyond; from a classic bach on a sandy beach to a secluded prefab on a cliffside, these seaside getaways all privilege an outdoor connection, craftsmanship, and the use of natural, durable materials.
