Wanaka Holiday Townhouse Wanaka, Central Otago - 2017

This holiday townhouse is located to a new central subdivision, surrounded by a broad variety of existing homes and cribs. Significant views from the upper floor mean that the living and main bedroom needed to be located to the upper level. The lower level catering for additional guests, living and outdoor access.

This home infuses local stone with open cedar slat and black steel detailing, with nods to the clients, Dutch (de Stijl) and Virginia (New England) roots.

Success of the upper floor living required an all-weather, all year, outdoor space. This led us to create a generous louvred terrace with gas fire, to capture the best of the lake views. It intentionally offers a new interpretation of the environment, that references its natural landscape more directly.

"The design and build process was enjoyable and smooth from start to finish. Since we were rarely on site during construction, we relied entirely on Tony Koia and David Happs and were thrilled with the result. The level of communication was great. From designing the home to helping choose a builder to assisting with the choice of interior and exterior finishes, they did a fantastic job, and I would choose them again in a heartbeat."
