With a View Like This, You'd Also Want a Facade That Could Fold Open


Located on New Zealand's Great Barrier Island, this solar-powered home designed by Fearon Hay Architects is as idyllic as they come.

Clad in rough-sawn timber, a series of folding metal screens open the interior to the deck.
The screens are perforated, keeping the home secure even as light and fresh air enter pass through.
Symmetrical bedrooms, one at each side of the house, flank the living room.
A water collection system and solar panels keep this home self-sufficient.
