Our cover story this month is about Chris Tate’s amazing glass box house deep in the dense New Zealand rain forest.The house has no driveway access, with just a slim timber staircase snaking down into the forest ravine to reach the deck.

Inside, the house is all clean lines and a simple palette of black and white, broken by vibrant dashes of lime green.

Love the green Leaf chairs by Lievore Altherr Molina for Arper, and the slatted timber Glide chaise by David Trubridge.

Find out more about this house that manages to marry style and sensitivity to the environment so well by visiting Chris Tate’s website.
