Bourke House in Matakana Takes Residential Exterior Maestro Award

The original family summer cottage relocated to next door made way for a new 'campsite' of conceptual 'tents' formed as connected pavilions. Inspired by and embodying intergenerational memories – the essence of long summer holidays, activities, collections, connections and stories. The pavilions are linked, forming a protective backing to the central space – the 'campsite heart' – as a gathering space providing comfort, protection and connection with the land and activities.

Neutral colours inside provide an inviting backdrop to the exterior, with native timbers salvaged from the seashore, eclectic collections personalising and connecting to the heart. Splashes of red from the pohutukawa tree represents the Christmas flower of joy and celebration – a client favourite. The Resene Burgundy highlights the structural innovation of the house. Without this unexpected use of colour the house would appear bland.

The judges admired the uniqueness of the totem effect. The use of colour brings this design feature to life and helps integrate exterior to interior.
