This stunning example of New Zealand architecture by Warren & Mahoney and Breen Construction, composed of dark cedar, sits on an elevated site overlooking Lake Wanaka and Mt Alta. The large outdoor room by Locarno Louvres, in collaboration with Design Windows, features Locarno RL200 louvre blades in a black anodised finish, providing a comfortable retreat from the elements.

"The house is a strong composition of dark cedar-clad buildings and materiality appropriate to its mountainous surroundings. The scissor truss structure of the main living pavilion is constructed with exposed recycled bridge timber, encompassed within the internal oak lining. The application of dark stain to the entirety of this main space further defines and focusses the views beyond. While large in programme, every one of the carefully considered parts contributes effectively to the delightful sum. Strong robust exterior materials are applied in a variety of textures to define each of the external spaces, and they complement the warm, dark, refined tones of the internal finishes."
