The house is crafted in a manner to allow for private rooms indoor and outdoor.
Two key outdoor spaces are employed. One to the west at first floor level via a balcony onto which kitchen, dining and lounge open out. It has solid balustrading to provide a sense of enclosure from the road.
A second area sits between the living wing and the rear master wing, enclosed from view of neighbouring houses, cupped with cedar walls, which integrate with the house’s forms.

A hidden full size pivot door leads into the entrance with stairs following up to the kitchen, dining and lounge areas. This space leads out onto the cantilevered deck overlooking Lake Wanaka. A glass linkway joins the master bedroom and ensuite with an internal private garden.
Over 5km of horizontal cedar is installed around the facade. The entrance looks understated, with a stone feature that the upper level sits on and is anchored to.
