It was the start of the Rugby World Cup this weekend and since we take rugby very seriously in our house, you can bet that we were up at 7am bleary eyed and groggy but cheering on our teams nonetheless (apologies to my neighbours, we will try and keep it down next weekend). I have really enjoyed watching the spirit and culture of the New Zealand people - what a wonderful event to host, especially after the earthquakes that devastated the country earlier this year. Keeping with the Kiwi spirit, I thought I would post about a beautiful house designed by Aukland based Herbst Architects. Apparently the site proposed a particular challenge as 90% of it was covered in mature pohutukawa trees. It is now nestled amongst the dense trees and completely looks like it belongs there!
