Family Retreat in New Zealand
New Zealand Asia Pacific
The Family Retreat consists of two 3-bedroom houses; Lions Lodge and R&B Lodge. They are wheel chair accessible, fully equipped, and have recently been honored with the 2009 Waikato Bay of Plenty Architecture Award for superior design in the multiple housing category.
The ground floor has open plan living areas, including a large bedroom with a sliding wall so in the event of a family member being unwell, they are still able to interact with the family. There are two bedrooms located upstairs. The accommodation sleeps eight people comfortably with two double beds, three single beds and a rollaway. Elliott Architects were praised for the buildings’ “simple forms, vibrant colours and multi-purpose spaces.”
