Sitting heavily on the landscape with unobstructed views across Lake Wanaka the Schist House settles into the landscape. Strong simple lines allows for the schist to really make a statement. 

The living and dining open out into an impressive outdoor entertaining area. A retreat room has sliders that retract back into the schist wall which open up to bring the outside indoors.

The exterior cladding is local schist with cedar reveals. The interior showcases the stone work alongside blackened steel and American Oak. 

A heated pool with uninterrupted lake views was added in 2022.
