Bethells Bach by herbst architects

Bethells is a coastal community located on one of Auckland’s popular west coast beaches. Bethell’s community is separated from the beach behind sand dunes that have accumulated over the last several thousand years. An area of natural beauty and wild landscapes, it is surrounded by mountains and native bush. Bethells Bach by Herbst Architects is located in the in the middle of this incredible landscape. It’s open design and warm materials create an informal look and feel that’s very inviting. The deck with a built-in fireplace makes the house great for socialization. “Playfulness and simplicity are the essence of this bach at the beach”, as stated by designer, Paul Buchan.
