Jensen Bay House has re-opened in 2010 it´s accommodation with the elements it was well known for: thought-provoking design, ground-breaking architecture and a unique nature-bonding experience. Jensen Bay House is more than a house: it is fully self-sufficient with state-of-art solar-photovoltaic-electric, solar-heat generating system, wind-generator, its own Freshwater-facility and New Zealand´s only clay-wall-heating-system. Garden and inside architecture were developed consulting a hindu monk and Feng Shui principles were implemented.
