New Zealand House

Queenstown, New Zealand

Completed 2009

The Queenstown House represents not only the firm's first project in New Zealand, but also a staunch departure/expansion from much of the firm’s previous work. The climactic and terrain-based differences between southeast Asia and Queenstown are extreme, and the exterior architecture reflects that. On first glance, the property suggests Scandinavian modern farmhouses of untreated timber, but upon further inspection bear the hallmarks of the firm’s work, with expansive, open rooms and sliding glass walls with shuttered wooden exteriors.
