Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
New Zealand’s most awarded Architects and Urban Designers in 2008, Patterson Associates Limited, has designed The Michael Hill Clubhouse, located on Wakatipu Basin, New Zealand. The architecture reflects the Nw Zealand’s identity which defined by landscape as well as the Maori mythology as a people borne of the land and the sky.
An integral truss system creates a skewed form, and supports a green roof planted in native tussock. Systems of energy, water, waste, and climate control are almost entirely contained on the site.
A skewed trapezoid geometry operates as three-dimensional spatial building blocks to define the volumes within the building, and the building within the landscape. This pattern is repeated across all scales, weaving the building into a three-dimensional matrix.
Inside, a glass-reinforced concrete panel ceiling, with integrated heating and acoustic design, hovers above white dimpled textured aluminium forms. The main bar and dining space is an intimate light-filled grandstand overlooking the 18th green.
Buried further back into the ground are service areas, workshops, and cart storage. A large private gym is flanked by a reflecting pond, where you can exercise before being massaged in one of the two bespoke colour therapy rooms making up the spa.

With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
