The Mahina house (the Maori name for Moon) designed by Weber Consulting in the shape of the crescent Mahina, Maori for moon that has been designed by Weber Consulting was originally slated to be placed on the relatively uninhabited Kawau Island, about 60km north of Auckland, New Zealand. Promoted as “Bondesque”, The Mahina – Maori for moon – has been designed in a curved crescent shape with ceiling-to-floor glass and a modern, white interior design. The house at Kawiti Point has a floor area of 827sq m and will feature a plant room, deck, swimming pool and “thermal mass” to regulate internal temperatures. Director Warrick Weber said there has been some interest from overseas Kawau is home to a mere 450 properties and 70 residents, who mainly get around by boat. There are no street lights and limited phone services. Residents knew little of the plans for Mahina, which has been around for about three years.
