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’…
