Designed as a holiday home on a suburban site, our client’s brief was to design an easy care get away home that capitalised on the big view to Mt Maude without compromising on privacy from the busy street.
The home is defined by two intersecting wedge shapes that inform the spaces within. A double height entry atrium configuration provides a sense of drama and allows for views and solar gain to be maximised. Angled rooflines, with deep oversize eaves, soar overhead to provide vital shade from the glaring Central Otago sun.
Inside this architectural home, the interiors have a contemporary alpine feel with ‘hygge’ accents providing the cosiness necessary of a family space. Hints of the exterior cladding combination of cedar and colorbond, lighter timber and dark tones are continued as a theme throughout the interiors.
