On a scenic but exposed lakefront site on New Zealand’s South Island, architects Tim Lovell and Ana O’Connell of Lo’CA created a pitch-roofed 2,690-square-foot residence for Tim’s parents. The home’s courtyard was excavated to help shelter it from high winds. A 10-foot eave over the windows and doors assists with sun shade and heat retention during the intense summer and winter months.

With so many small interior rooms and divisions between spaces, the addition of a net ceiling brings openness to the back alleyway, where the family often gathers to eat dinner.
