Adventure Whare Retreat

Adventure Whare Retreat, located in Castle Hill Village, New Zealand, offers a modern twist on the traditional A-frame hut. The design by Studio Well embraces the alpine aesthetic while focusing on practicality and sustainability.

The exterior form, inspired by A-Frame huts, offers shelter and privacy, nestled between trees. The roof peels up to reveal timber-framed glazing, connecting the retreat with the native bush reserve.

Inside, the retreat is warm and open, with exposed timber structural elements and cork flooring. A mudroom at the entrance accommodates wet gear, and flat-roofed bedroom wings provide privacy and relaxation. The beautiful retreat embodies simplicity, warmth, and connection to nature, reflecting the owners shared vision for living simply in a unique setting.
