A main building with steeply pitched roof straddles the old coastal road, large sliding doors open to this area allowing the memories of travellers to retrace their steps. The building creates two outdoor spaces along the line of the old road; the ﬁrst is a formal entry area with a staple like gate and ﬁreplace, the other a contained room like space used for dining and overﬂow sleeping.
Further around the hill a boatshed with monopitch roof provides shelter, storage and more recently a second place to stay. The original ‘fale’ was completed 1996 while at Jasmax, subsequent additions and reworking continues.
