the native shower

Long gone are the days when you dread those cold outdoor showers after a swim at the beach. Traditional kiwi baches are replaced with a modern container like retreat with all the modern comforts.

Inspired by the a traditional Kiwi holiday home, the bach is a home away from home.

When in use, the outdoor shower transforms into a water feature. Excess water is channeled into a surrounding water transport system made from recycled glass bottles.

The channels also navigate the excess water down each terrace and waters each New Zealand native plant.
