Designed as a personal project, Regan Johnston created this home / coastal retreat for himself whilst working at Mason and Wales Architects. This small project garnered both national awards and international interest in Regan's work which continues to generate enquiries for Johnston Architects to this day.

"Perched on a sand dune thirty minutes from Dunedin, surrounded by DIY fishing shacks, this structure takes the kiwi bach to a new level. Its simple gabled form and natural materials are honest, simple and robust – its rawness is its charm. Sustainability is unquestioned – there was no waste in the design, construction, or build time. This bach is at once stimulating and restful. An uplifting living space – the least expensive property we viewed – but one of the most inspiring. Like a haiku!"
