Island Retreat by Fearon Hay Architects

Whilst Hypebeast can become inundated with posts about clothing brands that I don't really care about, they do have great taste in architecture and interior design.

If you read the blog regularly, you'll know one of my interests outside of music is interior design and houses. Anyhow, this Island retreat by Fearon Hay Architects looks great.

Overlooking Matiatia Bay, the series of structures are designed around an open courtyard in a layered enclosure that is both modern and camp-like in its arrangement, while also sheltering the inhabitants from the high winds that often batter the island.

Each concrete space is associated with each aspect of the family’s living (eating, sleeping, entertaining, etc.), and is connected via retractable glass panels and perforated aluminum screens which complete balanced aesthetic with its rough surrounding elements.
