Located in Wanaka, New Zealand, the house, designed by Los Angeles-based architects Marmol Radziner, comprises two pavilions stepping across the site, framing views of the dramatic valley and mountain vistas. An anchoring stone wall running the length of the house creates a solid foundation that ties the two pavilions together.
Designed originally as the manager’s residence for the property, the house is protected from the strong sun and dry windy climate by low profile gable roofs with deep overhangs. Selected materials including wood, stone and plaster blend with the surrounding landscape. Herriot + Melhuish Architecture acts as the executive architect.
