The summer issue is curated around homes that explore the notion of ‘sanctuary’ — houses that feel good and homes that provide comfort, located in some of Aotearoa’s most scenic locations, from clifftop to seaside and lakefront. On the cover is Cliffhanger, an immaculately conceived home high above Auckland's Red Beach.
Inside, we explore three west coast homes, each responding to their coastal environments with insight and clarity. In Raglan, a family home aspires to honour and contest the intensity of the landscape, while in Otago a delightful home offers joy in the gabled form. In Northland, a rural house delivers a beautifully sculptural addition to an enviable coastal site.
