About 50 kilometers outside of Auckland, New Zealand lies a small but modern farmhouse. Situated in the backcountry bush of Puhoi, this contemporary farm shack takes pastoral living to a whole new level.

Constructed by LTD Architectural Design Studio, the home is acutely aware of its surroundings, drawing inspiration from the traditional backcountry huts that historically populated the area. Its exterior is composed of locally sourced band sawn macrocarpa and galvanized corrugated iron, while sunken bathtubs and an outdoor fireplace are just some of the other perks of this so-called back-country shack. With a breathtaking view, shack life seems oh so promising.
