About This PropertyRoger Walker Revived. When the ordinary and the suburban won't do. "Not just another box," was maverick architect Roger Walker's mantra when designing homes as revolutionary as this beach house, complete with sea views that are just as liberating.
Everything that defines Walker's iconic and unfettered approach is represented here with glorious audacity, from over-sized porthole windows to steeply-pitched cathedral ceilings with exposed rafters to the cylindrical tower staircase.
It eschews blandness and convention for exhilarating spaces and ingenious solutions, stepping down a hillside with unorthodox rigour to deliver an immersive multi-level experience that will delight those who disdain the norm and love to revel in the radical.
Built in the 1970s, this three-bedroom touchstone was significantly upgraded in 2005 to offer rare apartment-style living in Paekakariki while retaining everything that is quintessential about vintage Walker.
Set back from the beach, but with the playful Kiwi bach traditions of lawn and pohutukawa, it's just a few minutes' walk from the village and train station and includes the versatility of a purpose-built work-from-home office and the bonus of two garages in the same defiant architectural attitude of the house.
The result is a richly idiosyncratic castle near the sand that bears all the legendary hallmarks of a trailblazer truly worthy of The New Zealand Order of Merit for services to architecture - and homeowners with spirit and soul!
