Sometimes people want to leave the hustle of city life while still holding onto the finer side of such an existence and that's exactly what Patterson Associates allows with one of its latest designs. The architecture firm created a seaside home tucked neatly along the shores of the New Zealand coastline. Although quite luxurious, it is also very secluded.

Surrounded by rolling hills and with the expanse of the ocean stretching in front of it, the house Patterson Associates created is nestled in the Banks Peninsula. Contemporist writes that "the cottage has been built using local materials, like the rock that was quarried near its site. There is also on-site water harvesting and wastewater treatment."
