Scaled Down

The aim of the architect and the client for this Queenstown house was to achieve a building with a low profile that would be in keeping with the surrounding landscape. Discarding a flat roof, because of winter snow in the region, they opted for a low-pitch which will be scarcely noticed from ground level. Like many in Central Otago, the buildings feature local stone for the structure and paving of house and tennis pavilion.

The curtain of glass on the northern elevation provides panoramic vews of the surrounding countyside and an indication of who's winning the tennis!

Architect: Wilson and Hill
