Enveloped by dense native forest-covered mountain ranges, through the last bridge towards a small East Coast town on New Zealand’s North Island, the Karangahake House sits on the edge of a plateau that rolls off into a steep valley below. Surrounded by 3600 views of neighbouring farmlands, it is completely secluded with endless green plains and big blue skies. Orientation was key to maximize Northern views of nearby ranges and Mt Te Aroha (Love Mountain) across historical gold-mining gorge and Eastern views down to a winding river. Meticulous spatial design created vignettes to crucial scenic moments of these surroundings, with a specific client request to capture the Western setting sun behind Mt Karangahake, enjoyed right from the dinner table.

Clad in locally grown and sustainable vertical timber shiplap with eco-friendly natural wood finish, the exterior will grey in the years to come, revealing a rustic silver, reminiscent of classic ‘Kiwi Tramper’s Huts’.Save this picture!© David Straight PhotographySave this picture!© David Straight PhotographyThe tight budget and the 100m2 footprint challenged us to obsess over details, precise spatial designs, and the distilled essence of living simply. Our 5m wide gable roof design provides a long extruded form that minimizes internal circulation space without compromising easy family living. The main house, with a double height open living and kitchen area, a mezzanine above two double bedrooms and a bathroom, is connected by the Outdoor Room, to the guest bedroom/office with another bathroom and laundry/mudroom. The mezzanine offers an open versatile gathering space to accommodate impromptu friends and family visits. A covered verandah traces the house, much like a second hallway, to provide relief from the summer heat runs and melts into the hillside landscape. Save this picture!© David Straight PhotographyThe Outdoor Room, enhances the simple barn form, creates opportunities for flexible engagement directly between the owners with both their home and the environment. A large custom sliding barn door is able to shut out strong hilltop winds to a private moment with nature herself. Clear roofing above floods the space with soft batten-filtered light during the day, and glows like a lantern at night, recalling memories of the welcoming glow of a nightlight guiding tramper’s home. Save this picture!© David Straight PhotographyMAKE challenged typically wasteful, costly and arduous construction processes, collaborating with local partners at ‘Welhaus,’ pre-fabrication provided the ideal solution to meet our efficient, economic and eco-friendly architectural values. Pre-designed floor, roof and wall panels were pre-constructed then assembled on-site in just four days to allowed for swift joinery installation and external and internal linings to follow. This process resulted in near 0% on site-waste, a huge reduction of transport pollution, time and labour economy and efficiency as well as contributing positively to our collective community views on prefab home construction. The house features an airtight building wrap that pairs with the rigidity of fully plywood lined interiors and tilt-and-pivot joinery, as well as a sustainable ventilation system to create a warm, quiet and healthy family home.Save this picture!© David Straight PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessDentist Clinic SG / ATELIER GIAVENALESelected ProjectsYIJING Architecture Design Studio / Yijing Architectural DesignSelected Projects Share Karangahake House / MAKE Architects “COPY” New Zealand ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/943690/karangahake-house-make-architects Clipboard Area:  100 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  David Straight Photography Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year: center_img CopyHouses•Karangahake, New Zealand ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/943690/karangahake-house-make-architects Clipboard ArchDaily Photographs Architects: MAKE Architects NZ LTD Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© David Straight Photography+ 19Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyAbout this officeMAKE Architects NZ LTDOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookKarangahakeNew ZealandPublished on July 14, 2020Cite: “Karangahake House / MAKE Architects” 14 Jul 2020.

Japan is closing its schools for a month.Newsom’s statement came one day after a California patient was identified as the first case in the US of “community spread” the Centers for Disease Control said on Wednesday.Community spread means the patient has no known exposure to the virus or an individual carrying the disease, which have led to fears of an outbreak in the U.S.All of the 59 other cases in the U.S. have been for people who had traveled abroad or had close contact with others who traveled. Health officials have been on high alert for so-called community spread.Nearly 3,000 people have died and almost 90,000 people are suffering from the virus which has reached every continent in the world save Antarctica.At least 35 million people have been quarantined around the world.San Diego County was joined this week by Orange County and San Francisco in declaring a state of emergency because of the coronavirus, and growing fears have begun to impact the nation’s economy as the stock market plunged for the fourth day in a row.Currently there are no known patients in Pasadena.City Manager Steve Mermell on Tuesday said Health Director Ying Ying Goh has been “very engaged with county, state and federal officials as it relates to the Coronavirus.”Goh and doctors at Huntington Hospital are set to conduct before the City Council at the next meeting on March 9.“Given the spread of the disease, there is certainly cause for concern,” Mermell said. “However, we need to be mindful of not prompting panic or undue fear on the part of residents. Our response needs to be based on facts and information.”Meanwhile, officials in Pasadena said they have no kits, despite claims from the CDC that testing kits had been sent to cities with public health departments.“Everybody in this country is rightfully anxious about this moment,” Newsom said. “I think they should know we are meeting this moment with the kind of urgency that is necessary and I don’t want to over extend the anxiety.”Pasadena Unified School District Superintendent Brian McDonald issued a statement on Thursday.“On Tuesday, officials from the Centers for Disease Control warned that the novel coronavirus will almost certainly spread in the United States, and that schools and businesses should prepare for a possible pandemic,” McDonald said.“We understand that this statement may be creating concerns for our school community. While the fact remains that there is still only one confirmed case in L.A. County, PUSD is preparing and planning to keep our students and staff safe. At this time, there are no plans for imminent school closures.PUSD is updating protocols and preparing plans for virtual learning for schools in the event of a prolonged emergency of any kind, including coronavirus. We will keep you updated as this plan develops. Information is also posted at pusd.us.”California Health and Human Services Agency Director Mark Ghaly said health officials would change the way they test for the virus by “shifting from order and community containment to one where we acknowledge that community spread is possible.”Newsom said the state also currently has a shortage of coronavirus testing kits and has worked with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to update the testing protocols for the coronavirus.“The only testing currently available is at the CDC lab in Atlanta,” said Public Health Director Ying Ying Goh. “We are awaiting testing capability at the state public health lab, but no timeline has been given.”California only has 200 testing kits for the coronavirus and Newsom said the number of available kits from the CDC will be “exponentially expanded” starting Thursday afternoon.“That is simply inadequate to do justice to the kind of testing we need,” said Newsom.
