Schist House.

Schist House, Wanaka

Design

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. 

 

Architect

McCoy Wixon Architects

Living

To capture the lake views all living and dining and bedrooms have lake views. The living and dining opens out into an impressive outdoor entertaining area.  The indoor/outdoor retreat room has sliders that retract back into the schist wall so opens up to bring the outside indoors

 

Materials

Clad mostly in local schist with cedar reveals. 

Interior also showcases the schist work along with a combination of materials including blackened steel, American Oak.
