Waikanae Houses

Tucked away on the Kapiti Coast a couple of hours out of Wellington in New Zealand is a wonderful little seaside town called Waikanae.

Justine and I stumbled across this delightful little place in 2005 whilst there attending an Urban Design Conference. We stayed in a quaint architecturally designed cottage looking out over the beach. The more we looked around, the more gorgeous little beachside shacks were nestled amongst the sand swept streets and the dunes.


On ArchDaily today is a new “shack “in Waikanae by Parsonson Architects which certainly embodies my memory of that ‘place’…

Great photos bry Paul McCredie

Check this out Western Power

It sure would be very interesting for Western Power to sponsor / run a similar design competition for our own infrastructural explosion here in WA….

“These designs were submitted as a competition entry in March of 2008 to Landsnet, Iceland national power transmission company who was working in collaboration with the Association of Icelandic Architects. The competition’s goal was to obtain new ideas in types and appearances for 220kV high-voltage towers and lines. The competition emphasized that specific consideration be given to the visual impact of the towers (or lines) and that careful consideration be given to the appearance of towers near urban areas and unsettled regions.”
