Kauri Cliff Spa
Requiring the lightest touch on their exquisite site in Northland, Josie and Julian Robertson asked Construkt to build a new standalone health spa and fitness facility at their world-renowned luxury resort, Kauri Cliffs.
Partially burying the building in the sloping, grass-covered site, Construkt positioned the structure so that it was obscured on three sides by a stand of mature native totara trees – and on the fourth by a planted bund.
The subtle treatment means that – despite it containing a reception and waiting areas, three treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy room, gymnasium, swimming and spa pools, plus a sauna – visitors to the lodge are often unaware there is a building on the site at all.
