“Visible from afar, it was imperative that this summer residence blends into its environment.”
Inspired by the traditional Central Otago style, the house’s materials, shapes and colours were carefully selected to be sympathetic to its prominent lakeshore location. With two master bedrooms both fitted with walk-in wardrobes, the house provides spacious accommodation so that several family units can enjoy it at once. Recycled kauri was used in the joinery. Reclaimed hardwood posts and beams featured in the construction of the roof structure and the internal bridge linking the upper bedrooms. Throughout, panoramic windows capture the site’s exceptional vistas.
