Dubbed Waitī House after a star in Te Kāhui O Matariki cluster that has links to fresh water and the protection of life within it, the home’s name reflects its owners’ commitment to care for this piece of land, alongside which the Wairau Stream supplies a tinkling soundtrack. It also speaks to a passion for stargazing – one of the key experiences enabled within the experience of this out-of- this-world yet down-to-earth dwelling.
