Nestled in an elevated kanuka-covered site on Little Mt Iron in Wanaka. A simple monopitch design using a palette of dark cedar and metal was developed to quietly sit within the established native bush. This three-bedroom house is oriented to the northwest to capitalise on the impressive outlook to the lake and alpine vista beyond, with a deep verandah to regulate the harsh Central Otago sun in summer months. A sheltered rear courtyard with views through the main living area to the mountains provides protection from the prevailing northwesterly wind.
