Central Otago House

Central Otago House

Surrounded by a majestic alpine landscape, the design brief for this retreat was to ‘let the land speak’. The living pavilion responds to the ridgelines and the sky, while a private suite is partly buried in the hillside to celebrate the spectacular natural environment. Light wing roofs contrast with expressive in-situ concrete, cast like timeless rock strata, to evoke a poetic architecture of place.
