KANUKA RISE HOUSE

 
 

2008

 

Located on a Kanuka covered site on Little Mount Iron just out Wanaka, this holiday home consists of two wings linked by a double height corten steel and glass entry hall. Between these sit a courtyard and pool that are sheltered from the prevailing wind.

One wing contains the three bedrooms, living utilities, and garaging, while the front wing contains the living spaces and the main bedroom suite that take advantage of the impressive outlook. A deep verandah and screens provide relief from the harsh Central Otago sun in the summer months. A palette of robust and natural materials – including cedar, concrete and plywood are employed extensively throughout the house.
