Seascape Retreat is located within a small cove on the northern shore of two Miocene Shield volcanoes in New Zealand. Designed by Pattersons Associates, the small oceanfront cabin is built using locally quarried stone, cast in place concrete floors and ceilings and has a thick roof covered in the surrounding vegetation which makes it all but disappear into its surrounding volcanic mountainside. The thick roof is also designed to withstand any falling debris, protecting the glazings below that offer the interior views of both the bay and the Rocky Spires. The glazings are double glazed low 3-glass framed with storm and shatter proof steel mullions featuring earthquake resistant sliding heads. There are a lobby, a social zone complete with bedroom and a bathroom, interiors are modern and rather simple. The outdoor zone is as much a part of the social zone as is the main room inside.
