Oli Booth Architecture has designed Lightly Weight in Auckland, New Zealand.
This project acts as an interplay between light and shadow, a textural rippling facade that creates a robust and protective veil for the slight interior and efficiently planned Lightly Weighted.
Ideas of retreat and seclusion sculpt a highly detailed and concealed refuge in this space. The modest two-bedroom home feels removed and transportive, despite being embedded amongst residences in an inner Auckland suburb.
By creating a protective shell of sorts, the home feels both removed and private – where outward views connect to nature as a priority. Lightly Weighted reconsiders an inner-urban home, demonstrating the idea that living among others need not compromise on moments of solitariness and calm.
