The Tutukaka House by Crosson Clarke Carnachan Architects is a beautiful and secluded family getaway. This black-stained wood abode is located on the North Island in New Zealand.

This building is one-story, and has a beautiful view of the forested coast and ocean. At night, the house can be completely closed up to protect itself from the winds, and it also has a drawbridge at its entrance. The windows have foldable shutters, and when they are closed, burglars do not have a chance of even peaking in.

The interior of the house is made mainly from stained timber and plywood to create a contemporary rustic look that blends with its surrounding. The Tutukaka House is a stunning getaway that is a perfect relaxing retreat from the city.
