Maison Monolithique
Villa D - Al Ouidane, Morocco by Studio kO
 

This monolithic villa set in the awe-inspiring landscape of Al Ouidane, Morocco is designed by French architecture duo Studio KO with a refreshing modernist aesthetic imbued with subtle references to history and culture. The texture of the building’s surfaces — materials rooted in rural architecture such as unpolished stone and dry earth — speak louder than statement furniture or décor.

Land of The Long White Cloud
Scrubby Bay House | Residential Farmhouse Design by Patterson Associates
 

This residential farmhouse is set as the centre piece of a remote, symmetrical and thundering surf beach. It is sited on one of New Zealand’s iconic coastal sheep and cattle stations on the South Island – accessed only by helicopter or by farm track. Designed for an expatriate owner by Patterson Associates.

This week also features Toni Brogan, a New Zealand artist based in New York with a studio in the Catskills, where she creates soft, sculptural works in the woven medium.

Aotearoa is the Maori name for the country of New Zealand. The literal translation of Aotearoa is Land of The Long White Cloud.
