House, Kaikoura

Art Deco House, Kaikoura, New ZealandBack in May, I wrote about Marewa, the suburb created the land rising around Napier as a result of the earthquake that struck the east coast of New Zealand in February 1931.

Today, I am showing you a similar house in Kaikoura on the South Island. I suspect these types of houses are dotted throughout New Zealand. I love their simple elegance and bright colours.

This one is blue with square stepped-backed sections and very simple right-angle geometric decoration at the roofline on each corner. You will notice also the shallow eyebrow above the windows running around the house, linkng up with the rounded porch.
