Brake House

Designed by Ron Sang for internationally renowned New Zealand photographer Brian Brake, this stunning glass pavilion home looks almost as it is floating in the woods. Located in West Auckland, in New Zealand, the Brake House was designed to float above the bush and make the most of the distant city and harbour views. It has three bedrooms and five deck areas, perfect for early morning breakfast or afternoon dining. There is also a room dedicated to yoga. Structurally ambitious, with influences from the Far East, the house is deftly positioned to make the most of views near and far. watch the video below
