The classic cabin in the woods has been wonderfully reimagined into an architectural masterpiece. In this weeks episode we visit an architecturally designed cabin nestled into the forest of the wild West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island.
Owned and designed remotely by Mark Panckhurst, a Hong Kong based architect who grew up in New Zealand, this beautiful modern cabin is designed to connect him to his homeland and create a wonderful space for him, his family, and guests to make new memories.
The cabin was created with the help of his brother Andrew who gives us the tour of this spectacular place. Drawing design inspiration from the old gold miners huts of the West Coast, this is a cabin like no other. From the materials used, to the clever design features, every aspect of this place has been painstakingly thought through.
And the result? A wonderfully practical cabin which radiates quality while simultaneously encouraging you so sit back, light the fire, enjoy the panoramic forest views, pick up a book and slow down. Just like a good cabin should.
