Shark House

Breaking away from the traditional suburban box, the Shark House is an asymmetrical dwelling in New Zealand. The exterior takes queues from European supercars — the Maserati in particular — using overlapping angles to create the illusion of a building in motion. Its clean lines are covered in dark seamed steel while a timber grill on the upper level breaks up the monochromatic exterior. The interior radiates a surprisingly warm atmosphere with rich wood tones and textured concrete walls resemble the grain of the exterior's wood screens. The facade's stark details still make their way in through a suspended black steel staircase, reemphasizing the home's strong sculptural presence.
